Congressman Space Tours
U.S. Representative Zack Space, Ohio's 18th Congressional District representative, visited the COATC to tour industrial sites and facilities on Tuesday, September 2, 2008.

September 2, 2008

Our Congressman took a deep dive look here Tuesday. Congressman Zack Space, who represents the 18th Congressional District in which the COATC is located, visited the COATC for an extensive review. It was his second time at The Base.

He, personally, spent four hours on the ground here looking at industrial sites and facilities in the Heath area.

His visit included a tour of the soon-to-open Boeing Virtual Manufacturing Center, time in the underground labs of Bionetics, and a peak in the R&D clean room with AIS’ future-looking research. He was briefed on numerous site and area competitiveness issues as well during a windshield tour of the COATC and area industrial parks.

"Congressman Space and his office has been a help to us with so many issues in the last two years," said Port Authority CEO Rick Platt. "It was useful, I think, for him to get to see, first-hand, the issues that we’ve talked to him about in the past and to see the product of his work."
