Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Urbana) will visit manufacturing facilities and meet with vocational technical students in Ohio’s Fourth District on Thursday, October 6 and Friday, October 7 in celebration of National Manufacturing Day. This year, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) awarded Rep. Jordan the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. The award is based on his votes in the 114th Congress on issues that are critical to manufacturing in the United States.

“The Fourth District is a district that grows things and makes things. Manufacturing is incredibly important to folks here, and I’m proud to fight for the needs of the thousands of manufacturing business owners and their employees through my work in Washington.”

On Thursday, Rep. Jordan will speak at the Galion-Crestline Chamber’s industrial breakfast, their first Manufacturers Breakfast in honor of Manufacturing Month.

On Friday, Rep. Jordan will tour Detailed Machining, Inc. at 9 a.m. Afterward, he will speak with area students and community leaders at the facility as part of Detailed Machining’s Manufacturing Day celebration.
