Barton Solvents' employees and leadership team welcomed Rep. Pompeo with a tour of the facility, and an opportunity to meet and speak with Barton Solvents' employees. He discussed the chemical distribution industry's important role in the supply chain in Kansas and the United States. He acknowledged Barton Solvents' commitment to safety through Responsible Distribution; NACD's mandatory environmental, health, safety and security program that has resulted in NACD members being 80% safer than non-NACD members in the entire industry.

"I am glad to meet with the talented leaders and employees at Barton Solvents to learn about their jobs, and Responsible Distribution," Rep. Pompeo said. "The work the company does here in El Dorado is vital to our economy. I will continue the work in Congress to establish common sense policies that create a safe, secure and thriving business climate for Barton Solvents and the community."
