SCHOTT Joins SPIE Society Members During Annual Congressional Visits Day

SCHOTT North America Inc. recently met with Congressional leaders to discuss the importance of the optics industry to the U.S., and how Congress can support the industry’s critical, high-technology manufacturing and spur job creation. The visits are part of the involvement of SCHOTT, for the second consecutive year, with the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) during the association’s annual Congressional Visits Day activities. Approximately 250 individuals, representing the interests of more than 2 million U.S. scientists and engineers, met with Capitol Hill leaders to raise awareness of and support for science, engineering, and technology at the federal level.

“We look forward to showcasing our latest advancements in materials science and manufacturing technology that provide state-of-the-art, but affordable glass and glass/ceramic solutions for the most challenging defense applications,” said Jim Stein, vice president of Government Relations for SCHOTT. “SCHOTT’s defense solutions are increasing the capabilities and protecting the lives of U.S. servicemen and -women around the world. In this ever-changing fiscal environment, making the right investments in technologies that provide the best long-term value for our men and women in uniform is critical as our nation prepares for the military of the future.”
