U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar stopped at Ideal Aerosmith in East Grand Forks today to present the company with an Exporting Achievement award.

Senator Klobuchar toured the facility and met company administrators and staff. Ideal Aerosmith designs and manufactures avionics test equipment to companies worldwide. The company was named 2012 Business services supplier of the year by Rockwell Collins. Senator Klobuchar says Ideal Aerosmith is at the forefront of the manufacturing industry.

We're finally starting to reignite manufacturing in America," said Klobuchar. "So we are making things whether they're complicated systems to test missilies like they do here at Ideal Aerosmith or whether they are just simple products."

Senator Klobuchar's visit was the first of other stops today to manufaturing and health companies in Thief River Falls, Fargo and Moorhead.
