Loebsack visits with staff at Performance Pipe
BLOOMFIELD, Iowa —
Congressman Dave Loebsack was back in Bloomfield Friday afternoon to focus more on jobs for Iowans.
Loebsack has played a role in bringing more jobs to plastic fitting manufacturer Performance Pipe.
Performance Pipe neighbors the Bloomfield Municipal Airport, so the company needed approval from the Federal Aviation Administration before it could add more silos to the business.
Loebsack helped make it happen and since then, the company has added about 15 more jobs.
Friday, Loebsack toured the plant to learn more about what the employees do. He told KTVO now that Performance Pipe has added more jobs, the company needs more staff.
"There are jobs available in Iowa, and I think a lot of folks are not aware that there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in the state of Iowa and this part of Iowa and that's really important," Loebsack said.
Earlier this month, the congressman met with Bloomfield farmers, where he also discussed ways to bring more jobs to the area.
