ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 11 Chip Supply, Inc., a global provider of semiconductor die and specialized packaging solutions, was pleased to host a visit yesterday by U.S. Senator George LeMieux (R-FL) to its corporate headquarters. The Senator, who is a co-sponsor of the Export Promotion Act (bipartisan legislation aimed at increasing export trade in the small business sector), met with Chip Supply to review, firsthand, how federal export promotion could expand sales opportunities for small businesses in Florida and increase job creation within the state.
Chip Supply President and CEO, Edward Perrott, who welcomed Senator LeMieux to the company and took him on a tour of the campus and facilities, provided an overview of the company's products and services, the current markets served, both domestically and globally, and the growth opportunities within each. "It was both a pleasure and an honor to have Senator LeMieux visit our facility today, and we greatly appreciate the interest he took in our business, as well as his obvious commitment to help businesses, like ours, compete successfully in the global economy," said Perrott.
While at Chip Supply, the Senator hosted a short news conference to emphasize the importance of the passage of the Export Promotion Act both to small businesses and Florida's overall economic growth.
