Lehigh Hanson logoThe Hanson Aggregates quarry in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, hosted Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pennsylvania) for a visit and tour of the operation.

According to Hanson, the congresswoman and her district staff visited with employees and learned about the role quarries and aggregate play in building the economy.

A number of Hanson regional and area management members were in attendance, including Chris Hobby, senior vice president and general manager of materials in the Northeast; Mark Kendrick, vice president and general manager of eastern/central Pennsylvania and New Jersey; Gerald Spearing, plant manager at Glen Mills; Andrew Gutshall, area environmental manager of eastern/central Pennsylvania and New Jersey; and Brandon Matejik, management trainee at Glen Mills.

The Hanson team provided Scanlon with an educational overview focused on company sustainability perspectives, key investments in the local community, the need for a long-term infrastructure investment and workforce development.

“Hosting a tour like this provides a great opportunity to tell our story and share how critical our products are to a vibrant and growing economy,” says David Perkins, vice president of government affairs and communications at Hanson. “The successful outcome of this tour demonstrates how important it is to foster productive relationships with our elected officials across the country.”
