Manar GSI TourWSPRINGFIELD – In an effort to gather input from the private sector on ways the state can improve its approach to economic development, State Senator Andy Manar (D–Bunker Hill) has been meeting with local business leaders and touring both small and large businesses throughout the 48th District this summer.

Last week, Manar spent an afternoon touring Grain Systems, Inc.’s manufacturing headquarters located in Assumption. GSI is the largest manufacturer of galvanized steel storage bins in the world.
