Show of Support for Lippert Components Inc.
“To actively foster business growth, member services and a united community” is the mission of the Chesaning Chamber of Commerce, and in that spirit we are sharing a letter written to Lippert Components Inc. in care of the Chesaning location’s general manager, Scott Vincent. We know that many of our chamber members are watching the conversation between LCI and the Village of Chesaning with great interest, knowing how the loss of such a valued member of our chamber and community could have a great impact upon us all.
Dear Mr. Vincent,
On behalf of the Board of Directors and membership of the Chesaning Chamber of Commerce, I am writing to share our support of the local Lippert Component Inc. employees and management in their hope to retain your glass and window plant operations here in Chesaning.
Despite the short amount of time that we have had to become familiar with Lippert Components, we have already been very impressed with the spirit of volunteerism and community support shown by your business as well the positive changes that you have brought to the former Hehr plants. We are excited to hear about your plans for a new, more modern and efficient facility and hope that your investment in Chesaning will inspire other businesses to consider our location for future development.
The loss of the opportunities that Lippert offers our community in terms of employment, economic impact and future partnerships with our Chamber members would be felt deeply. Chesaning has a lot to share with your business even beyond the commitment that the village council has already made to help secure a location for your new development. For example, the Chesaning Union Schools are seeking new ways to partner with our chamber members to both help their students plan for future success along with supporting businesses’ needs for a trained, job-ready work force. The low cost of living in our area and small-town atmosphere make Chesaning a great place to work, live and play, giving your employees a safe, comfortable and affordable place to call home.
If there is anything that we can do as a chamber to help Lippert Components to build local partnerships with our Chamber members and community, please do not hesitate to contact me or our Chamber office. We look forward to having LCI as a valued industry in our village for years to come.
