Congressman Anthony Gonzalez recently visited Wooster Products to help celebrate the company’s 100th Anniversary. Wooster, a maker of anti-slip safety stair treads and walkway products, hosted their local Congressman who presented a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition honoring the company for its centennial celebration.
"It's companies like this that built the country and employ our people," Gonzalez, the Ohio Republican, said during the visit. "It's survived a lot, and it needs to be recognized." Throughout the tour, Gonzalez spoke to various workers, including production managers who explained the process in more detail. "The facility reminded me a lot of my family's steel factory up in Cleveland where I had my first job," Gonzalez said after the tour. "It felt like home."
Despite their 100 years in business, the congressional visit was a first for Wooster. "It is truly an honor to receive this recognition," said Wooster President Poonam Arora Harvey. "It means so much."
Wooster’s products are used in many industries, including such high-profile installations like World Trade Center complex, the Capitol Building, AT&T Stadium and other professional and college sports stadiums, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Statue of Liberty, and many more.
