Today, August 15, 2011, Logan Aluminum had the distinct privilege to welcome Senator Mitch McConnell to our plant in Russellville, Kentucky. Mr. McConnell had requested this visit through his staff in order to meet our teams and understand the issues facing our industry.
Senator McConnell had the opportunity to meet with the leadership teams of Logan Aluminum as well as representatives of the owners, Novelis Inc. and Tri-Arrows Aluminum.
The Senator expressed a keen interest in the issues impacting Logan Aluminum with a view toward creating policy and decisions in support of American Manufacturing.
After a brief tour, the Senator addressed a large group of Logan Aluminum employees who had gathered in the roll-shop. Upon completion of his remarks, the Senator remained on the floor to shake hands and greet each individual who had attended.
Following his tour of Logan Aluminum, the Senator addressed a luncheon hosted by the Logan County Chamber of Commerce at the UK Agricultural Extension Office.
