Congressman Welch Tours Sonnax


Sonnax President and CEO Tommy Harmon was honored to welcome U.S. Rep. Peter Welch to Sonnax headquarters on September 23, 2013.

One, it had a real commitment to research and development and created a good product," he said after his tour. "Two, it has fabulous workers and a good engineering department and, three, they have just created an employee-owned company.”

"This is 100 percent employee-owned and the morale here and the talent here is tremendous," he continued. "There are a lot of good jobs for Vermont at this company and that's essential to our economy."
