U.S. Congressman Bill Posey Holds Town Hall at MC Assembly

U.S. Congressman Bill Posey held a town hall with some of the Space Coast’s hardest working electronics employees when he visited electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider MC Assembly in Melbourne on August 18.

Posey spoke with workers about their concerns this election season during a 90-minute visit to the Melbourne facility, located at 425 North Drive in Melbourne.

The representative also toured the manufacturing plant, which provides electronics manufacturing services for some of the country’s largest companies.

“We showed Rep. Posey how the Space Coast is thriving because of the hard work of the people of Brevard County,” said George Moore, CEO and president of MC Assembly, a $200-million manufacturer based in Melbourne. “More than $60 million dollars are directly re-invested by MC Assembly in the state of Florida, with over $30 million in Brevard County alone, proof that MC Assembly is contributing to the success of the Space Coast.”

Posey, who serves on the Committee on Science, Space and Technology and its two subcommittees on Space and Oversight, was given a guided tour of the MC Assembly plant, where the company produces electronics for the aviation, medical, telecommunications and defense industries.

“We’re a local business with our roots firmly planted in Brevard County,” Moore said. “The success of MC Assembly and its workers is proof of what can happen when government works to support American businesses like ours.”

Posey, currently serving his fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives, represents Florida’s 8th Congressional District, which includes all of Brevard and Indian counties as well as a portion of Orange County (Bithlo, Christmas and Wedgefield).
