GOP Leaders Visit NACD Chemical Distributor

Aug. 9, 2016
House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Ron Johnson visit Wisconsin-based EMCO to discuss regulatory relief.

Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) visited EMCO Chemical Distributors, Inc.'s Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin facility on August 5, where they met with EMCO President Edward J. Polen and employees to learn more about steps the company is taking to ensure safety and to discuss how Congress can increase regulatory certainty. EMCO is a member in good standing with the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD).

Chemical distributors reportedly account for more than 1,300 direct jobs and $100 million in direct wages in Wisconsin. As the industry continues to grow, NACD members like EMCO have been encouraging Congress to reform the regulatory process and provide chemical distributors and other U.S. businesses the regulatory certainty needed to continue as economic engines and job creators, according to NACD.

"As an NACD member, EMCO has proven to be a gold standard when it comes to job creation, community investment and safe chemical distribution," says NACD President Eric R. Byer. "We're thrilled that Speaker Ryan and Senator Johnson took time out of their busy schedules to tour the facility and discuss ways for distributors to grow their nearly $550 million economic output in the state of Wisconsin."
