A strong supporter of Illinois’ business, Andersson was eager to learn more about local production and help support Manufacturing Month in the community.
“I not only want to say I support manufacturing, but show support for local manufacturing,” said Andersson. “Manufacturing is a critical part of our economy. We have to take care of it, promote it, and continue to support it in Illinois. At this crucial time in our state, we must fight for small business and manufacturing to stay here and help them thrive.”
On today’s tour, Andersson learned about specific challenges manufacturers like MAASS face, and how the Illinois climate has made things more challenging for business, including what Illinois legislators can do to help.
