Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM) hosted Illinois State Senator Don Harmon and a team from his office for a tour of its Franklin Park, Ill., Polyisocyanurate (Polyiso) insulation manufacturing facility. Senator Harmon and his team observed the facility’s production of Polyiso insulation and met with several of the company’s employees.
CCM invited these legislative officials as part of an ongoing effort to raise legislators’ awareness of the benefits that manufacturers bring to their communities and to discuss the challenges now facing America’s manufacturing sector.
“As a U.S.-based manufacturing company, we were privileged to host Senator Harmon and his team. We are eager to discuss ways in which we can work together to create and sustain good-paying jobs for Illinois and support the growth of the manufacturing industry,” says Mike DuCharme, CCM vice president of marketing.
“A changing economy and innovations in technology pose challenges for the future of the manufacturing sector in our state. I appreciated the time in the district and the chance to learn firsthand about this company and the industry,” says Senator Harmon.
CCM is a member company of the Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association (PIMA), a national trade association representing Polyiso insulation manufacturers and suppliers to the Polyiso industry. PIMA advances the use of Polyiso insulation and advocates for energy-efficient practices and policies. In addition, PIMA has been recognized by both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Sustainable Building Industries Council for its advocacy and products.
