Congressman Tim Ryan Visits Republic Storage SystemsFebruary 4, 2013
Congressman Tim Ryan of Ohio's 13th congressional district visited Republic Storage Systems on January 17th, 2013. Pat Lowry and Katie Clarkin of his district office in Warren, Ohio, accompanied him.
During the ninety-minute tour, Congressman Ryan learned a bit about the locker and storage business and was able to meet and interact with a large number of our associates. "He has an excellent understanding of the challenges facing manufacturing in the United States, and we are lucky to have him on our side" said Mike Dyer.
We discussed our particular needs and the challenges we face both domestically and internationally. Before departing, we agreed to continue our dialogue and work with his office to strengthen our competitiveness and ensure that American manufacturing can continue to thrive and grow.

A Cautionary Tale on Contract Flow Down RequirementsAugust 17, 2012
We received this article from one of our distributors this week. It highlights the troubles one company has found with representation about source of origin and use of foreign-made products where US products are specified. It seems as though enforcement of these provisions is expanding the issue and is gaining more political attention.
We encourage all of our customers to carefully review their contract language so that any and all product requirements are properly specified and conveyed to their suppliers. This assures you are receiving a compliant product.
