Creation Technologies Welcomes Cong. Paul Ryan in Wisconsin Facility


Reading time ( words)

Today, Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI-1), Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means, met with executives and employees of IPC-member company Creation Technologies at the company's manufacturing facility in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Coordinated by IPC, the world’s leading association for electronics manufacturing companies, this visit is part of a nationwide effort to inform policymakers about legislative and regulatory issues that affect the electronics manufacturing industry.

“Creation Technologies is on the cutting edge of our economy. They’re promoting innovation and creating the jobs of the 21st century. We’ve got to streamline the regulatory process so more manufacturers in southeast Wisconsin can expand opportunity from the bottom up,” said Congressman Paul Ryan.

With facilities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and China, Creation Technologies has decades of experience designing, manufacturing, and providing customized supply chain solutions to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) around the world. Today’s site visit included a tour of the facility, and provided discussions with industry insiders on issues including fostering innovation, emerging markets, and regulatory compliance.

“Today, we were delighted to host Congressman Ryan, Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means,” said Eric Bohnsack, general manager of Creation Technologies in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. “On behalf of Creation Technologies, and IPC, I thank him for his visit to see first-hand the advanced manufacturing taking place right here at Creation Technologies in Wisconsin. We look forward to working with the Chairman to ensure that sound tax policies are enacted by Congress to help keep businesses in America globally competitive.”

Rep. Ryan’s visit was part of IPC's "Meet the Policymakers” program, through which IPC government relations staff arrange opportunities for IPC member-companies to host elected officials at company locations. This is the third visit in 2015 by a Member of Congress to Creation Technologies’ facilities. On April 8, U.S. Rep. Tim Walz (D-MN-1) visited Creation Technologies’ facility in St. Peter, Minnesota and on August 13, U.S. Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX-3) visited their facility in Plano, Texas. IPC member companies interested in hosting a legislator should contact IPC Vice President of Government Relations John Hasselmann at JohnHasselmann@ipc.org.
