Tours manufacturing facility in Denton and visits with employees
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today visited the Peterbilt Motors Company’s heavy-duty truck manufacturing plant in Denton. There, he met with executives and employees over lunch to hear their concerns and listen to their ideas on what can be done in Washington to further expand economic opportunity and reduce the burden of federal regulations on manufacturers across Texas.
“I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit the folks here at Peterbilt,” Sen. Cruz said. “My number one priority in the Senate from day one has been jobs and economic growth. And that’s true for a very simple reason: that’s the top priority for the hardworking men and women of Texas. Texas is home to some of the most innovative and successful companies in the world because we’ve embraced commonsense, free-market values that promote prosperity. I am committed to applying those same values in Washington and will continue to fight to tear down barriers to growth and opportunity for Texans.”
Based in Denton, Texas, Peterbilt Motors Company has for nearly 80 years developed a global reputation for industry-leading design, innovative engineering and fuel-efficient solutions. In addition to meeting with employees, Sen. Cruz toured the factory floor and had the opportunity to drive a brand new Peterbilt semi on the facility’s test track.
