"It was a pleasure to meet today with the leaders and employees at Barton Solvents to learn about their jobs and their commitment to safety through Responsible Distribution," Congressman Latham said.  "The work the company does in Des Moines is vital to our economy and our supply chain.  I will continue working with my colleagues in Congress to establish commonsense tax and regulatory policies that encourage a safe, secure and thriving business climate for businesses like Barton Solvents and the community."

Barton Solvents' employees and leadership team welcomed Rep. Latham 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 Iowa 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.

"We are proud to host our friend Congressman Latham at Barton Solvents today," said David Casten, President of Barton Solvents. "Policy makers are invited to see our business in person to see the differences in manufacturers and distributors. Some policies really affect our business and our employees so we are grateful for the chance to explain what we do. We need a business friendly environment. We are glad Mr. Latham was here today."
