Rep. John Moolenaar, R-Mich., will visit Groupe Beneteau’s facilities in Cadillac, Mich., as a result of meetings company executives had on Capitol Hill during this year’s American Boating Congress held May 9-11.

Groupe Beneteau representatives attended meetings with elected officials from Michigan, Maryland and South Carolina, where the company has facilities.

They met with staffers of reps. Paul Mitchell, R-Mich., and Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., as well as Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.

Executives met directly with Moolenaar, which resulted in plans for the congressman to visit their facilities on May 31, according to the company.

Discussion included recreational fishing, trade policy, fuel policy and infrastructure challenges – as well as workforce challenges.
