Sen. Rob Portman to Visit Kent Friday
Northeast Ohio trip includes stop at Kent State
U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) will travel to Northeast Ohio to tour Dearing Compressor & Pump Co., AlphaMicron, and Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) in Mahoning and Portage Counties today.
“Northeast Ohio is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, from the manufacturers at Dearing Compressor & Pump Co. whose compressors have enhanced natural gas exploration, to the scientists at AlphaMicron who revolutionized eyewear to protect our Armed Services in combat, to the educators at NEOMED who have ensured that Ohio’s medical professionals are well-equipped to treat the local community,” Portman said.
“As these technologies continue to progress and develop, they will solidify Ohio’s position at the center of technological advancement while creating more opportunities for Ohio’s workforce and making America a leader in innovation,” he said.
AlphaMicron started as an off-shoot from the Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State University.
