MFG Chemical, LLC Hosts Site Visit with Congressman Tom Graves (GA-14)

Dalton, GA – MFG Chemical, LLC recently had the pleasure to host a visit from Congressman Tom Graves, who represents Georgia’s 14th Congressional District at the Kimberly Park Corporate Office on Tuesday, August 8th to meet with the leadership team, share updates from Washington, discuss issues important to the specialty chemical industry and tour the facility.

 

“MFG is proud to have Congressman Tom Graves representing the 14th district.  With an ever changing business environment, Congressman Graves has shown time and time again that he can support the needs of the chemical business”, said Keith Arnold, CEO & President.

 

During the visit members of the MFG Management staff talked with Congressman Graves about the State of the Company, how far the MFG has come since the Congressman’s last visit, and the recent recapitalization of MFG Chemical by private equity group Platte River from Denver, Colorado.

 

“We commend MFG Chemical for hosting the site tour with Congressman Graves,” said Robert F. Helminiak, Managing Director of Government Relations for the Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates. “Congressional site visits are an excellent way for our member companies to build relationships with elected officials and demonstrate their contribution to the local economy and community. By touring these facilities, members of Congress can see firsthand how plant processes relate and affect legislative issues.”

 

MFG Chemical would like to thank Congressman Tom Graves for taking time to visit with members of our staff and leadership team, and we look forward to working with the Congressman on areas of mutual interest moving forward.
