Missouri Congressman Billy Long likes to visit small manufacturing businesses in the 7th District. Thursday (5/7), he toured New-Aire Fireplace Systems in Carl Junction. Long tells News Talk KZRG New-Aire is a success story he wants to share.
"A year ago, they had two and a half employees. He and his wife bought the company. Today they have ten (employees). They've already added a new product to their product line. This is the type of the success story that I wanted number one, to see what they're doing right; and number two, I wanted to highlight it if I could, so that people know that things are coming back."
That new product is a wood-fired pizza oven. You can see pictures of Long's tour in the photo gallery at NewsTalkKZRG.com.
