U.S. Rep. Walter Jones, D-N.C., visited the Regulator Marine factory last week and spoke with employees.
The tour was led by Regulator Marine president and owner Joan Maxwell, who discussed the strong recovery of the business since 2008 as demonstrated by higher volumes and increased hiring.
As the congressman toured the plant, he spoke with Regulator employees about current issues and concerns. Jones toured each department and spent time thanking the employees for their hard work and great reputation in the boating industry.
After the tour, Jones sat down with the management staff for more in-depth discussions about Syria, health care and the marine industry.
