Congressman Mike Turner and Congressman Steve Chabot (OH-01), Chairman of the House Committee on Small Business, held a panel discussion on manufacturing with Fuyao Glass America suppliers.


Congressman Turner released the following statement:


“When the Obama Administration wanted to permit the former GM facility to be demolished, I stepped in to preserve it for future job creation and investment in our community. We fought to save this facility from being demolished.


“Today, we heard from small business suppliers who have been able to hire new employees, expand their operations, and partner with Fuyao because this facility was saved. Chairman Chabot was able to see firsthand the impact that our efforts have made in supporting small business growth. Chairman Chabot and I are continuing to help cut red tape and help small businesses spur job growth and innovation throughout Ohio.”


Chairman Chabot made the following statement:


“Southwest Ohio is one of the best places for small business investment right now. I’m looking forward to spending time with Congressman Turner and these incredibly bright small business leaders in the Dayton area to see how, working together, we can find more ways to alleviate the burdens on small businesses now and in the future.”
