CONGRESSMEN PAT TIBERI AND MICHAEL TURNER TO VISIT THURSDAY
Tour of Air Force Primary Standards Lab, Aerospace Center Roundtable Slated

HEATH The Heath-Newark-Licking County Port Authority will host two members of Congress on Thursday for a tour of the Air Force Primary Standards Laboratory and a roundtable with defense-industry leadership of the Central Ohio Aerospace and Technology Center. U.S. Representative Pat Tiberi and U.S. Representative Michael Turner are slated to visit the Aerospace Center facilities in Heath, Thursday, August 21, 2014, at 2:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

The visit is scheduled as part of the caucus-building strategy of the Port Authority to keep federal and state officials engaged and informed with an understanding of the importance of the Aerospace Center to the national defense. The Air Force Primary Standards Laboratory is operated by the Bionetics Corporation. Officials from Bionetics, AFMETCAL, Boeing, UTC Aerospace Systems, and the Port Authority will join in the industry roundtable.

At 2:30 p.m., the laboratory tour will begin. It is located in Building 4 on the Aerospace Center campus and accessed through the Visitor Center on the west side of the building. At 3:30 p.m., the Horton Building clean room is the venue for the industry roundtable. It is located at the southern entrance to the Horton Building.

Members of the media are permitted to attend the tour and roundtable discussion. As the security requirements for the Air Force Primary Standards Laboratory are stringent, media are encouraged to alert the Port Authority in advance as to who may be attending to ensure prompt security clearances. The roundtable discussion does not require security clearances.
