Nationwide Tour Stops at Telsmith, Inc. to Rally for Long-Term Highway Support

July 30, 2014

Telsmith, Inc. in Mequon, Wis., will host a stop on the nationwide I Make America Harley Tour. On behalf of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), I Make America and its more than 30,000 supporters advocate for pro-manufacturing policies to create more jobs in the U.S. and keep the economy competitive with other countries.

The Harley is taking to the open road in a uniquely designed truck with glass sides. It will stop at Telsmith, Inc. located at 10910 N. Industrial Drive in Mequon, on July 31, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Senator Alberta Darling, Representative Dan Knodl and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch will be near the display at 1:00 p.m.

The purpose of the Harley Tour is to raise awareness about I Make America and its mission, as well as engage AEM Member Companies and their employees to help make a difference. Everyone who signs up through October 3 has a chance to win the 2014 Harley-Davidson Road King, featuring a custom I Make America paint job. You do not need to be at the event to enter. Simply visit www.IMakeAmerica.com for a chance to win the Harley and become an I Make America supporter.

“Telsmith, Inc. has a rich history of manufacturing innovative products for the aggregate & mining industries with a US based work force that takes pride in their individual jobs to deliver quality products to our worldwide customer base,” said Matt Haven, president of Telsmith, Inc. “Programs, such as I Make America, ensure that opportunities in manufacturing will not only remain in the US, but continue to expand.”

“I Make America was created to be a force for positive change in the equipment manufacturing industry,” said Dennis Slater, AEM President. “Economic conditions in America remain a challenge and we need our government to partner with us to advance pro-manufacturing policies that address those challenges. I Make America is our platform to spread awareness and maximize our voice in Washington, DC.”

“Manufacturing is a key driver for our state’s and our nation’s economy. It’s vital that elected officials pursue pro-manufacturing policies that promote infrastructure and exports so we can move our products across America and around the world,” said Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch. “I’m encouraged to see Wisconsin employers and employees working together to advocate for the policies that will keep creating jobs and growing our economy.”

According to AEM, about one in six private sector jobs in the U.S. depend on the manufacturing base. Congress can help to create business conditions that will grow the economy and U.S. manufacturing jobs by encouraging infrastructure investment, protecting U.S. farming and increasing American exports for our economy to keep pace with other countries.
