Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick toured the Chant Engineering Co. Inc. headquarters to see first-hand an American business success story. With five straight years of record growth, Chant continues to expand and hire new employees. Congressman Fitzpatrick wanted to see first-hand and meet the key personnel driving this growth in today’s challenging economic environment.
“Meetings with small-business job creators right here in Bucks County are essential to my understanding of the problems facing our economy,” said Fitzpatrick. “American entrepreneurs are working to succeed in a difficult business environment thanks to onerous and ineffective regulations, exploding debt, and the threat of higher taxes.”
During the tour, Congressman Fitzpatrick performed a break test on a sling using a Chant 600,000 lb. capacity wire rope testing machine. “This was really interesting,” commented Fitzpatrick while examining the broken end of the sling. “I wasn’t aware this industry even existed.”
