FRANKLIN PARK, Ill. — Carlisle Construction Materials hosted Illinois State Sen. Don Harmon and a team from his office for a tour of its Franklin Park, Ill.-based Polyisocyanurate (Polyiso) insulation manufacturing facility.

Harmon and his team observed the facility’s production of Polyiso insulation and met with several of the company’s employees on April 24.

CCM said it invited the legislative officials as part of an ongoing effort to raise legislators’ awareness of the benefits that manufacturers bring to their communities and to discuss the challenges now facing America’s manufacturing sector.

“As a U.S.-based manufacturing company, we were privileged to host Senator Harmon and his team. We are eager to discuss ways in which we can work together to create and sustain good- paying jobs for Illinois and support the growth of the manufacturing industry,” said Mike DuCharme, CCM’s vice president of marketing.

“A changing economy and innovations in technology pose challenges for the future of the manufacturing sector in our state. I appreciated the time in the district and the chance to learn firsthand about this company and the industry,” said Harmon.
