Chairman Scott Gryder and Congressman Randy Hultgren Visit Local Manufacturers

On March 6, 2017, County Board Chairman Scott Gryder and Congressman Randy Hultgren (IL-14) visited local manufacturers in Plano to learn about products produced locally, and to hear any concerns at the local, state, and federal level. Plano Mayor Bob Hausler accompanied both men on the visits.

Chairman Gryder, Congressman Hultgren, and Mayor Hausler first visited MTH Pumps. President Tim Tremain gave the Chairman, Congressman, and Mayor a tour of his facility as well as a brief history. Started in 1971, MTH Pumps has steadily grown over forty years by providing excellent products to companies all over the world. In addition, President Tim Tremain has continually participated in the community by taking local students and community groups on tours, providing internships, and help developing trade skills programs across the County.


Chairman Gryder, Congressman Hultgren, and Mayor Hausler also visited Fabtek. President Mike Chesnutt led the tour of the facility explaining Fabtek’s long history from starting in the 1940’s in Aurora until 2009 when he took over the company. Fabtek is expanding as demand for their stainless-steel boilers continues to grow.

Both companies show that our local businesses are able to flourish both locally, nationally, and globally with the hard work of the owners and employees. With businesses like this, Plano and Kendall County’s economy will continue to grow stronger. Their strength will help maintain the vitality of the community that is Kendall County.
