Linda Sánchez Promotes Local Manufacturing, Visits Cerritos John Crane Facility (August 14, 2014)
Highlights business’ role in creating jobs and protecting the environment
Cerritos, CA- As part of her continuing support for local manufacturers, Rep. Linda Sánchez (CA-38) today toured the John Crane facility in Cerritos, CA, to highlight the role their products and services play in protecting the environment.
“Supporting our local businesses and manufacturers remains one of my top priorities in Congress,” said Congresswoman Sánchez. “The site’s 44 employees are turning out first-class industrial products that not only contribute to economic growth and jobs here in California, but also provide environmental benefits worldwide.”
Congresswoman Sánchez toured the facility at the invitation of the company’s managers, who showed her the innovative solutions John Crane delivers to energy service customers to improve equipment reliability and performance.
“John Crane is creating products here in California that help people all over the world. High-quality sealing technology is making it possible for us to develop and use energy resources in America and around the globe in ways that are more efficient and reduce emissions for everyone.”
The visit was also an opportunity for Congresswoman Sánchez to voice her support for the Environmental Protection Agency’s efforts to reduce methane leakage, including methane escaping from the rapidly expanding oil and gas market. Collaboration between government and industry would not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also provide new markets for the sealing devices that American workers are making. Cooperation with the business community will help government reduce methane emissions and build a safer environment
“I am convinced that we can reduce the risks from climate change with American-made products and create more jobs in California while we’re doing it,” she said. “I am committed to fighting for our nation’s manufacturers and commend our local businesses for their work to support our economy.”
Congresswoman Sánchez is a strong supporter of the House Democrats’ “Make it America” agenda, which promotes policies that create American jobs and expand America’s manufacturing sector. When we create products at home, we grow our economy, promote competitiveness, and help working families.
John Crane is a global leader in engineered technology, supplying engineered products and services to energy services customers and other major process industries. The company designs and manufactures a variety of products including mechanical seals, couplings, bearings, and artificial lift equipment. The products meet or exceed all emissions standards and can help reduce fugitive emissions from vital applications.
