Whitehouse Visits Bristol Manufacturing Company

RI Senator Kicks Off “Making It in RI” Tour of Local Businesses

Providence, RI – As Congress begins a new term, U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse will continue his focus on issues and legislation important to Rhode Island manufacturers.  Yesterday, he visited Composite Energy Technologies in Bristol to hear about their work.

“My first priority is to keep fighting to get our economy back on track.  That means bringing new business to our state, but it also means supporting existing companies and keeping good jobs here,” said Whitehouse.  “I was pleased to hear from the folks at Composite Energy Technologies about what they need to continue contributing to our local economy.”

Throughout the coming week, Senator Whitehouse will visit a series of local businesses to discuss challenges facing our economy and proposals to help manufacturers and small businesses grow and succeed.

Composite Energy Technologies, Inc. applies composite technologies to the development, engineering, and manufacture of a wide range of products, including military equipment, transportation products, and alternative energy components.
