PENDERGRASS, Ga. — April 17, 2015 — TenCate Geosynthetics Americas welcomed Congressman Doug Collins (Ga.-9th) to its Cornelia Manufacturing Facility on April 1st to discuss transportation and other important issues in Washington, D.C. During his visit, The Congressman met with TenCate Geosynthetics leadership, toured the manufacturing facility and spoke with employees.
The discussions revolved around the operations of the Facility, the need for workforce development, the value of innovation and new approaches to challenges facing our national infrastructure. TenCate Geosynthetics’ products, including those produced in Cornelia, significantly lengthen the life span of a road, again leading to a lower drain on the HTF over time.
Daniel Trope, TenCate’s Director of Government Relations, was encouraged by the visit. “Congressman Collins has been a tremendous ally for manufacturers in his district. We appreciate the Congressman’s support as he and his colleagues in Congress work on innovative solutions to robustly but responsibly fund transportation programs in this country through innovation.” TenCate’s Office of Public and Government Relations will continue to work with Congressman Collins and the company’s other representatives in Congress to reinforce TenCate’s brand and position as the industry leader.
Solutions, like TenCate Mirafi® RS-Series fabrics, help to reduce the cost of maintaining America’s roads by requiring less aggregate material, such as gravel, in road construction while extending overall pavement life.
