Government Representatives Recognize Protomatic’s Success

On March 12, Congressman Tim Walberg and District Representative Charles Bogren visited Protomatic during their travels around South East Michigan. They chose to visit Protomatic because they heard from several sources that Protomatic was expanding capacity and adding employees. They were also interested in our history and how we were able to accomplish an enviable level of success in spite of the general Detroit area economy.

They were also interested in what they could do to help companies like us to become more successful, leading to conversations about topics that affect small manufacturers and their customers -- tax codes, both Federal and State, and the need for our politicians to make decisions in Washington that promote manufacturing investments.

During the plant tour, Congressman Walberg and Representative Bogren saw Protomatic’s manufacturing environment and the diversity of parts manufactured for medical and aerospace customers. Both were impressed with the extent of investment in new capital equipment and growth in employees over the past two years. Protomatic continues to add and upgrade equipment and staff to meet customers’ growing needs for mission critical parts, and continue to contribute to customers’ success.
 
At Protomatic, “Life-saving Precision” is the highest commitment and responsibility. At the end of the day, it was apparent to Tim and Charles that Protomatic is committed to excellence, and the success for any company will be based on a solid governmental foundation. Meetings like these help make both organizations successful.
