HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker (D-Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Somerset) toured KWG Industries Tuesday and discussed jobs creation and technological innovation with employees.
KWG Industries is a precision engineered component parts manufacturer and a metals distributor. Zwicker, a physicist at Princeton University’s Plasma Physics Laboratory, listened to what the business needs to continue to grow and be successful.
“What I heard today is what I have been hearing from entrepreneurs and business owners around the district,” Zwicker said. “New Jersey needs to embrace and grow our innovation economy if we are going to create the jobs necessary to compete globally and with neighboring states.
"We need to make sure our universities and colleges are of the highest quality and affordable so businesses have qualified employees," he added." We need to make sure our laws and regulation create an opportunity to succeed and we need to encourage more collaboration with our research universities.”
“We appreciate Assemblyman Zwicker’s interest in our business, and his drive to improve the business climate in New Jersey,” said Kurt Grimm, president of KWG Industries. “We produce precision engineered component parts and supply raw materials to customers worldwide in various industries such as: medical, aerospace, defense and industrial fields."
“New Jersey needs more companies like KWG Industries, companies that promote and encourage innovation and technological advancements. Our future depends on generating more innovative ideas and risk-takers and then building an environment that keeps them here,” Zwicker added.
KWG Industries is celebrating 20 successful years in business. KWG Industries acquired Peterson & Marsh Metals in 1996 and then Jersey Machine & Tool Company. KWG provides a unique selling proposition to customers by supplying raw materials as a distributor and machines material into component parts.
Grimm also is a member of the Board of Directors for Raritan Valley Community College’s Engineering Department and a founding member of the Board of Directors for the Advanced Manufacturing Program.
