Congresswoman Robin Kelly visits Avatar Corp.
University Park, IL, February 5, 2015, University Park, IL- United States Congresswoman Robin Kelly visited Avatar Corporation’s University Park Plant on January 15, 2015. Kelly toured the manufacturing facility; met with Michael L. Shamie, President and CEO, and other key executives to discuss international trade issues, transportation challenges and workforce development initiatives.

During Kelly’s visit, she met employees in each department. “It was nice for so many employees to be included in welcoming the Congresswoman. We had a chance to personally greet her. In other places I’ve worked, they may have just walked the VIP past you without saying anything”. said Peggy Ashman, Laboratory Supervisor. Since her election in 2013, Kelly has ‘jumped right in’ and continues to build relationships with businesses in Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District. “We’re fortunate to have the support and cooperation of Representative Kelly as we work to increase the amount of business we do around the world”. said Shamie.

Avatar Corporation, founded in 1982, is a manufacturer of active pharmaceutical ingredients. In addition to Pharma, Avatar addresses the special needs of the Food and Personal Care industries.
