The visit was prompted by a suggestion from the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute that legislators be invited to visit companies in their districts. The institute is the trade association that represents manufacturers of air-conditioning, heating and commercial refrigeration equipment.

"I am extremely impressed with the products I saw being produced today," Bishop told employees. "The factory and the people here at Marvair are proof that Georgia companies can and do compete successfully in a world economy."

During a luncheon Bishop heard about several legislative issues and opportunities that affect the industry and promised to look into them.
