NRC and REMSA member company Holland, L.P., hosted Peter Danos, Suburban Outreach and Grants Coordinator for U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), on Aug. 18, for a tour of its University Park facility, which manufactures a variety of railroad track components for the railway industry.
Duckworth currently serves on the Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation, the Committee on Environment & Public Works, where she is the chair of the Subcommittee on Fisheries, Water and Wildlife, as well as on the Armed Services Committee.
Jordan Wolf, president, Russell Gehl, executive vice president, Business Development, and Rob Rosencrans, general manager, Rail Services, North America of Holland led and participated in an employee meeting with Danos and a tour through the manufacturing facility.
“It was terrific hosting Peter at our facility today and getting the chance to hear what the Senator and her staff are hearing on Capitol Hill. The decisions that come from Capitol Hill have the chance to impact Holland both positively and negatively, so getting to hear from our Senator’s staff on issues that matter to our industry was a great experience” said Wolf.
Danos and those participating on the tour talked about the products and services Holland provides and touched on the economic benefit they provide Illinois, as well as the over 36 different countries they have provided services in across the globe.
“It’s wonderful to be here today touring the Holland facility and learning about what they do to support Illinois and the industry . . . I’m very much looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned today with the Senator,” said Danos.
