Senator Sherrod Brown visited Stirling Ultracold and was given a tour of ultra-low temperature (ULT) manufacturing operations by Vice President of Manufacturing, Brett Harris.

At Stirling Ultracold, we’re very proud to be innovating and manufacturing ultra-Low freezers in Athens, Ohio, and developing a U.S.-based workforce in a historically underserved business zone. That’s why I was very pleased when U.S Senator Sherrod Brown recently accepted our invitation to come to Athens and tour our facility.

Senator Brown’s visit not only allowed him to see our manufacturing operation and meet our employees, but also provided an opportunity for us to thank him for his support of targeted federal incentives that have helped us secure new investment and growth for our business.
