On Monday, July 28, 2014, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) visited A&E Custom Manufacturing in Kansas City – part of the Fairfax Industrial Association – to learn more about their work in high-end fabrication and metal stampings. During his visit, Sen. Moran called A&E a great example of a successful company that is now getting jobs that were going to China because of their innovative technology and educated workforce. As A&E continues to compete globally for business, Sen. Moran said he will continue to work in Washington to put in place pro-growth politics that lower energy and health care costs – two issues owner Steve Hasty mentioned have an impact on his business.
Also joining Sen. Moran and Steve Hasty on the tour of the A & E facility were Steve Dailey of Fairfax Drainage District and Marty Quinn of Industrial Lumber – both Fairfax Industrial Association board members. Steve Dailey shared an update on the levee system surrounding the businesses in Fairfax. During the visit, Sen. Moran also enjoyed learning about the partnership A&E has with Kansas City Kansas Community College to train students on equipment used in fabrication and metal stampings.
