Washington - Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX) received the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence today in recognition of her consistent support of manufacturers and their employees. The award was presented at Williams-Pyro, a high-tech manufacturer in Texas’ 12th Congressional District. 

“On behalf of Williams-Pyro and our employees, I thank Congresswoman Granger for championing the causes that will help manufacturers thrive in Texas and across the United States,” said Della Williams, Williams-Pyro President and CEO. “We’re fortunate to have Kay Granger in our corner, advocating policies that will enable us to grow, create jobs, expand internationally and stay ahead of our global competition.”

“Congresswoman Granger supports common-sense policies that will enable manufacturers to create and maintain good high-paying jobs in Texas and throughout America,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons.  “A vibrant manufacturing base is vital to getting our economy turned around and ensuring quality of life for all Americans. It is critical to have lawmakers like Congresswoman Granger whose actions consistently match their words when it comes to a pro-manufacturing agenda for economic growth and job creation.”

Key manufacturing votes for the 111th Congress included energy policy, taxes, regulations and labor law reform, among others.

“The Award is a non-partisan indicator to help manufacturers and their employees sort out the true allies of manufacturing based on their votes on key issues that affect the manufacturing economy, jobs and U.S. competitiveness,” Timmons noted.
