Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden toured on Wednesday (Aug. 23) Country Coach Inc.’s manufacturing complex in Junction City, marking the second time this year the legislator has visited the highline coach builder.
“We are always pleased to host Sen. Wyden when he comes to call,” Country Coach President Jay Howard said in a press release. “His support of our employees, our company and the RV industry as a whole is very valuable to continued prosperity here in Lane County.”
In addition to visiting with company executives and touring areas of the Country Coach campus, Sen. Wyden spent nearly an hour fielding questions and brainstorming ideas with a large group of Country Coach employees, touching on subjects from education to health care and taxation.
“It’s always great to meet with folks at companies like Country Coach to talk about how the Federal government can do a better job creating an economic environment that will lead to more and better jobs,” Sen. Wyden said. “Country Coach is a leader in their industry and we’re proud to have them as an Oregon company.”
In the last few months, in addition to hosting visits from Sen. Wyden, Country Coach has been host to Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski and newly appointed U.S. Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne.
