Mr. MEADOWS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Thermo Fisher
Scientific's facility in Asheville, North Carolina, for winning the
Industry Week Best Plants competition.
According to Industry Week, winners of this annual competition are selected based on their strong manufacturing performance and an unending pursuit of performance excellence.
The equipment manufactured at Thermo Fisher's Asheville plant, including cold storage for biological samples and other lab products, enables research and scientific discovery around the world.
Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the Asheville site and see firsthand their commitment to investing in process innovations, including their progress toward sending no waste to the local landfill by 2015.
I am thankful for the employment opportunities Thermo Fisher brings to Western North Carolina and pleased that Industry Week--and others worldwide--are recognizing its achievements.
Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the entire 11th District of North Carolina, I congratulate the dedicated employees of Thermo Fisher Scientific's Asheville facility on this well-deserved award and thank them for their ongoing commitment to our region.
