[Page S10667] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] RECOGNIZING GLAIZE COMPONENTS
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 known. ____________________
