TLC Ingredients Inc. officials said today it gave Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL) a tour of its facility to show him the value and safety of chemical distribution companies that participate in programs like the National Association of Chemical Distributors.
"We enjoyed having Congressman Hultgren meet our team and tour our facility today. It is critical that our policymakers understand how chemical distribution works and the positive economic impact distributors generate in their local communities and across the nation," TLC Ingredients President Tommy Turriff said. "His interest in our industry and programs like Responsible Distribution demonstrate his commitment to ensuring a business environment that stimulates economic growth and creates jobs."
The congressman said he was pleased to have been given a tour of the facility.
"It was a pleasure touring TLC Ingredients this afternoon and learning about their work as they hire workers and grow their operations right here in the 14th District — all the while ensuring the safety and security of the community through Responsible Distribution," Hultgren said. "Seeing the chemical distribution process firsthand and learning how companies like TLC Ingredients contribute to the great state of Illinois helps inform my work in Congress pursuing legislation to provide greater economic opportunity for all Americans."
TLC Ingredients distributes chemicals and food ingredients across the United States, primarily to the Upper Midwest.
Based in Crest Hill, Illinois, they are committed to responsibly distributing their products through corporate sustainability and to working with suppliers and customers to protect the environment, support employees and give back to their local community.
