Colorado’s U.S. Senator Cory Gardner, along with members of his staff, recently toured the CoorsTek Center for Advanced Materials in Golden, Colo. Opened in 2016, the center supports the development of new materials that help product designers, developers and manufacturers across industries overcome a broad range of challenges through the high-performance properties of advanced ceramics.
Jonathan Coors, CoorsTek co-CEO, Randel Mercer, chief technology officer, and Patricia Mishic, chief commercial officer, briefed Gardner and his staff on the current state of advanced materials development and manufacturing at the center and other CoorsTek facilities, including developments enabling breakthroughs in semiconductor manufacturing, medical devices, and energy production. Gardner was also briefed on the latest CoorsTek advancements in ballistic armor, enabling greater protection of military and law enforcement personnel.
“I appreciated the opportunity to tour the CoorsTek Center for Advanced Materials today and learn more about how this Colorado company continues to be a global leader in innovation and developing cutting-edge technologies,” said Gardner. “I am a strong advocate for advancing American research and development, and CoorsTek is a prime example of how companies in the United States continue to be at the forefront of technological innovation. Colorado is proud CoorsTek calls Colorado home, and I will continue to champion policies that grow our economy and keep America competitive.”
“CoorsTek welcomed the opportunity to host Senator Cory Gardner at the CoorsTek Center for Advanced Materials today not only because he is one of our home state’s key elected representatives, but also due to his long-standing leadership and advocacy on nationally important issues, including innovation and competitiveness, increased research and development, sensible regulation, and sustainable economic growth,” said Coors. “We were proud to share with him the latest developments at CoorsTek, a family-owned company that has developed and manufactured products in Colorado that have made the world measurably better for over 100 years.”
