We recently attended the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce’s Spring Legislative Brunch & Manufacturing Conference. The conference, which was held at the Sheraton Dover Hotel, recognizes how manufacturers like New Process Fibre have been at the fore of the recent growth of Delaware’s economy. Over 40 different manufacturers from around the state came to be part of some great discussions and to hear speeches from some of the biggest names in the Delaware business community. Ned Monroe (Senior VP of external relations for NAM), AstraZenica’s Mike Crawford , and Jim Wolfe (Pres. and CEO of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce) all touched on the importance of government regulation and tax policies that are business-friendly. They also spoke to the idea that Delaware’s manufacturers have to get involved in the political process in order to guarantee that their voices and concerns are heard at the state and federal levels.
Attendees also enjoyed an outstanding and informative keynote speech from Governor Jack Markell. Gov. Markell let the assembled manufacturers know how grateful he was for everything the DSCC was doing for the state and for its people. Before his talk, we were lucky enough to get some quality one-on-one time Governor Markell at our booth. It allowed us to share with the Governor the role New Process Fibre plays in Delaware’s growth and prosperity.
Overall, it was a fantastic conference. It made everyone at New Process Fibre all the more proud that our high quality non-metallic stampings, sheet extrusions, and tooling are “Made in Delaware”.
