The Boss Makes a Splash in Florida

By December 6, 2004General

As mentioned below, our new boss, former Michigan Governor John Engler, went to Florida last week for a first-of-its kind manufacturing summit. Well, he’s not the kind of guy to sneak in and out of town unnoticed and indeed he didn’t disappoint this time, either. Stories appeared in the Tallahassee Democrat, Tampa Tribune, AP, Metro Networks (Radio), Orlando Sentinel, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Daytona Beach News-Journal and South Florida Business Journal about his trip and the efforts of manufacturers and Governor Jeb Bush to make manufacturing a priority in what is a significant manufacturing state.

Here’s a link to our press release summarizing the event and its outcome, and including some good video clips of Gov. Bush and of our extraordinary Board Member Al Stimac of Metal Essence.
