Rep. Ron Kresha, R-Little Falls, welcomed Bob Guck of Airborn Inc. as his guest to Wednesday’s State of the State address where he participated in a jobs roundtable with local job creators from across the state.

House Republicans used their guest tickets to the annual address, traditionally reserved for friends and family members, to invite Minnesota job creators to participate in a roundtable immediately preceding the speech and to join them on the House floor.

“The roundtable provided an excellent opportunity to hear from job creators across Minnesota about the best way to make Minnesota more competitive and put more Minnesotans back to work,” Kresha said. “It was helpful to hear the concerns and suggestions from these job creators, and I look forward to discussions as session continues about helping to grow Minnesota’s economy.”

Airborn Inc. produces thousands of specialized connectors for a variety of industries including the aerospace industry, medical industry, manufacturing industry, and many others. Originally based in Texas, Airborn Inc. opened a new plant last year in Little Falls.
