U.S. Congressman Anthony G. Brown, who represents Maryland’s Fourth Congressional District, received a private factory tour of the Thompson Creek Window Co. 117,000-square-foot building in Upper Marlboro, Md. In an effort to strengthen Maryland’s economy and provide opportunities for residents within the Fourth District, Congressman Brown asked to host a round table discussion in the Thompson Creek Window Co. factory with other local manufacturers. During the round table discussion, companies discussed their business successes and challenges in today’s economy along with how Congressman Brown could get involved to assist with specific initiatives. In addition, Congressman Brown also discussed the 21st Century Investment Act of 2017, a bill he will be introducing in Congress this session to leverage existing tax credits to spur innovation, increase productivity and create good-paying American jobs.
Congressman Brown is a long list of political leaders who have honored Thompson Creek Window Company by recognizing their leadership in manufacturing, construction and business. Other notable previous VIPs have reached out to Thompson Creek Window Company in the last couple of years as the resident experts in the home improvement industry to consult to determine how legislation will affect companies and their employees. Some of the previous VIPs include President of the U.S., Barack Obama (January 2011), Governor of Maryland, Larry Hogan (2015), Maryland President of the Senate, Mike Miller (2015), Prince George’s County Executive, Rushern Baker (2011, 2014) and many more.
Thompson Creek Window Co. has a growth plan for the next 5-10 years by expanding geographically and by introducing new products and services to the market. The local community has been instrumental to the Company’s success to date and will continue to play a role in the future as well. With the construction of the new factory over one year ago, Thompson Creek plans to create at least 150 new jobs over the next six years, many of which will be filled by Prince George’s County residents.
