“Nestlé’s Laurel Operations Center represents one of the most delicious parts of our state’s economic activity,” said Senator Cardin. “The company’s sustained investment in the area in the past decade represents a key part of the Route 1 revitalization effort.

“From Volvo Truck Group to Paul Reed Smith Guitars, Flying Dog Brewery and many others, it has been tremendously helpful to for me to listen to the needs of local businesses and take real ideas back to Washington. The federal government should be a partner, not an obstacle, helping to assist these great companies as they strive to be the best and most innovative in their field,” Senator Cardin said. “’Made in Maryland’ is my way to highlight the diverse products being produced in our great state and companies that are reinvesting in their employees and our local communities.”
