Rep. Valadao and House Speaker Paul Ryan took a tour around the MEC Aerial Work Platforms facility in Kerman, CA, Wednesday.

Valadao and House Speaker Ryan took the tour to learn more about the company's history and their community. 

David White, President of MEC has this to say about their visit: 

“Because of the reform, not only did our 123 employees received a $1,000 bonus this year but the tax benefits to our customers’ businesses is creating more sales growth for us and more jobs for our community. Speaker Ryan and Congressman Valadao’s visit today gave our employees the opportunity to meet those representing them in our government. Our employees were able to hear from them about the commitment to U.S. business growth and job creation through comprehensive tax reform. Speaker Ryan expressed appreciation for companies like MEC which continue to grow through innovation in the U.S. market and create job opportunities in the Central Valley. That makes all of us at MEC feel good about the jobs we are doing.”
