Rep. Napolitano Visits City of Industry, Promotes Job Creation
(City of Industry, CA) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32) visited Commercial Cooling and Jacmar Foodservice Distribution in the City of Industry to discuss local economic issues and ways to promote job creation.
“The City of Industry continues to attract businesses to our San Gabriel Valley, stimulating our economy and providing much needed jobs,” Napolitano said. “We applaud Commercial Cooling for their commitment to American manufacturing and congratulate them on their new internship program. We also celebrate Jacmar Foodservice Distribution’s decision to remain in the area, moving their headquarters to a new, larger distribution center here in the City of Industry. This allows them to hire more workers and continue to serve our region.”
Joining Napolitano and her staff on today’s business visits were City of Industry Mayor Tim Spohn and City of Industry Chamber of Commerce Director Don Sachs.
“Today was a great opportunity to have the Congresswoman come out to the City of Industry and tour a couple of the businesses we have,” Spohn said. “It shows that the City of Industry is working hard to provide places for businesses to thrive and create employment opportunities here in the San Gabriel Valley.”
Commercial Cooling has 58 full-time employees and specializes in manufacturing walk-in coolers and freezers. They recently partnered with the City of Industry and six local schools to place students graduating from high school that do not intend to go to a four year college, into a job setting of their interest, that may result in a full-time position. Jacmar Foodservice Distribution provides supply chain solutions and serves the complete needs of the restaurant industry in all of Southern California and Las Vegas, Nevada. They employ nearly 100 workers and maintain a second distribution facility at their former headquarters in Irwindale.
