Springs Fab no stranger to political spotlight

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, ,

Jason Schlagel operates a bridge mill at Springs Fab, where Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will be Saturday.

Springs Fabrication, Inc., a Colorado Springs manufacturing plant, will be a campaign stop Saturday for Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

But it’s not the first time a presidential candidate has chosen to stump from the Springs manufacturing business, owned by  CEO Tom Neppl.

Arizona Sen. John McCain made a stop there during his 2008 presidential campaign.

Showing support for manufacturing has the potential to win a lot of votes, apparently.

Neppl was contacted by the Romney campaign to be the host of the “grassroots rally.” His 100,000-square-foot plant provides a wide-open space for folks to gather and meet the candidate.

Neppl started his company in a garage 25 years ago. Today he has 160 employees and delivers products across the country to a wide range of industries, including new and existing energy, government and military, and mining and remediation, has been the cornerstone of continued success

Romney will be at the plant, 850 Aeroplaza Drive, at 2:45 p.m. ahead of the Feb. 7 Colorado caucus.
