Axalta Coating Systems Hosts Congressman at Virginia Plant

Axalta Coating Systems hosted Congressman Bob Goodlatte, serving Virginia’s Sixth Congressional District, at its Front Royal plant on Sept. 8, 2014, to address a large group of employees.

Congressman Goodlatte is visiting select industries in the area in support of local economic growth. Lou Papa, Axalta plant manager, hosted the congressman.

“We enjoyed visiting with Congressman Goodlatte,” said Papa. “Our Front Royal plant manufactures and distributes high-quality paint products for customers in the Refinish and Industrial markets. We are proud of our team members and our products, and we are pleased that he took the time to visit our facility.”

Added Goodlatte, “Axalta has an important presence in Warren County – both employing many hardworking individuals and helping to stimulate the local economy. I was delighted to visit the Front Royal facility to learn more about the work they are doing and take questions from team members on some of the issues facing our nation today. I thank Lou Papa and the team members in Front Royal for welcoming me.”
