 Mr. ALLEN. Mr. President, I am pleased to acknowledge Glaize 
Components, an internationally recognized lumber company founded in 
Winchester, VA, more than 150 years ago. The company first started in 
Northern Shanendoah Valley as a charcoal production business, but 
quickly evolved into a lumber company.
  When Glaize Components was founded in 1854, they made a commitment to 
providing the highest level of quality to their customers, employees, 
and industry. To meet increasing market demand and expand their 
geographic reach, Glaize Components has opened two new plant locations 
in Shelby, NC, and LaCrosse, VA.
  Throughout its history, Glaize Components products have included a 
complete line of building components for residential and commercial 
uses, such as roof trusses, wall panels, and floor trusses. Their use 
of software systems specifically designed for truss systems and their 
incorporation of laser-guided truss building processes has gained them 
international recognition by manufacturers from Africa, Russia, China, 
and Japan.
  The immense respect Glaize Components receives for its superior 
manufacturing processes--both at home and abroad--is a testament to 
their success and leadership in the industry. I am honored to 
acknowledge Glaize Components accomplishments over the past century, 
and I am confident that they will continue to serve their customers 
with the expertise, quality, and dependability for which they are
