Discusses and learns about issues surrounding Ohio’s prominent manufacturing industry
State Representative Al Landis (R-Dover) recently visited the Timken Company’s bearing plant in New Philadelphia. The representative spent a couple hours touring the facility and discussing the issues that currently face local manufacturers, particularly short-term and long-term state issues.
“The New Philadelphia plant is so important to our community and state,” said Representative Landis. “It has been here since 1953, and they’ll be celebrating their 60th year there next year. It is my goal to do everything in my power to help ensure the plant remains here for another 60 years and will still be competitive in the global market.”
