Statement From Congressman Reed on Corning, Inc. Announcement
"We are committed to doing all we can to help create jobs for hardworking people in our region. It is great to see Corning, Inc.’s commitment to our area by creating hundreds of local jobs and good career opportunities. This innovative manufacturing will produce a better type of glass that will help save lives by ensuring glass fragments do not end up in injectable drugs. This is a critical patient safety issue, and I have personally called officials at the Food and Drug Administration to make sure they understand the importance of this new technology. This is big news and a great example of the economic engine we have right here in our backyard."
