Bill Johnson visits ELPRO Services

MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) Representative Bill Johnson of Marietta met with officials from ELPRO Services and toured the company's facilities.

ELPRO, which is a leader in temperature and environmental monitoring solutions has been in Marietta for 13 years but recently moved into a larger facility.

Johnson talked with company leaders and workers while asking questions to better understand the business.

"They provide monitoring systems, data monitoring systems for pharmaceutical transport for storage and those kind of things and I think this bares looking into, so I’m anxious to hear more about what they do and maybe where it might play a role, where a company like ELPRO might play a role," said Johnson, Congressman.

"It means a lot to us as a company because I think finally the industry is getting some recognition as to what we can do as a company to reduce health care costs that it doesn’t just start with the manufacture there are more facets," said Micalyn Harris, President and CEO of ELPRO North America.

ELPRO's main office is in Switzerland, but the Marietta office serves as the U.S. headquarters.
