KENILWORTH, N.J. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07), Vice Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, visited Exothermic Molding Inc. in Kenilworth as part of multi-stop tour for National Manufacturing Day.  Exothermic Molding builds seamless plastics and Lance visited the facility to see its state-of-the-art equipment.

“American manufacturing produces safe and reliable goods and commodities that the world economy counts on.  An American brand guarantees a safe product with high-quality workmanship created by a skilled workforce.  I saw that first-hand at Exothermic Molding,” said Lance.  “I work in Congress to ensure the 21st century is another century driven by American manufacturing.  Lowering tax rates to compete globally, easing the burdens of regulations, leveraging American-made energy and providing economic incentives to start new projects all will help facilitate growth and competitiveness.  These policies will create jobs, boost wages for existing jobs and keep a strong American presence in the global markets.”  

The Seventh Congressional District includes nearly 600 manufacturing facilities that employ 40,000 employees, according to the National Association of Manufacturing.  Lance sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and serves as Vice Chair of its Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade Subcommittee. The lawmaker has visited many small businesses in the Seventh Congressional District to learn how Washington can help incentivize innovation, eliminate red-tape and boost job creation. During Manufacturing Day, Lance focused on how to empower American-made brands to compete against global competitors and how best to keep American jobs and creativity in the U.S. Lance has brought the ideas and suggestions of these constituencies back to Washington to help craft policy.

Exothermic Molding Inc. is located at 50 Lafayette Place.
