It’s always a honor when we get a special visitor to our home base here in Coldwater, MI, but this past Friday the excitement radiated throughout the town when a Michigan State Congressman, Tim Walberg, came to visit our facilities.
Tim Walberg is the State Congressman Representative for the 7th District of Michigan. When he heard of how fast Sport Truck USA and its brands -BDS Suspension, JKS Manufacturing, RT Pro UTV, Zone Offroad, and Posi-Lok 4×4, has grown and is projecting to grow he wanted to know more about what we were doing and how he can help to represent companies like ours.
Walberg’s visit also included meeting some of our top leaders within the company: Mark Meldrum, President, Matt Everline, Director of Operations and Engineering, and Steve Rutz, Controller. These three gentlemen escorted Walberg around and were able to give some great insight on the company.
When Walberg arrived he was briefed on the company with a video of the company’s history. We were able to tour three of our six buildings: the main building, the Research & Development building, and the media building which is still under construction. While down at R&D Walberg got a sneak peak at our SEMA build, he was impressed to say the least.
It is always a great feeling to be recognized by the government. For someone to want to come see the impact that our company has made within our community is something we are proud of and we were honored to be recognized for it.
