On Tuesday, Gov. Rick Scott attended the ribbon cutting at Hernon Manufacturing’s facility expansion in Sanford.
A worldwide innovator in developing high-performance adhesives, sealants and precision dispensing equipment, Hernon Manufacturing has increased sales by 100 percent over the last three years.
In March, Scott announced the creation of 20 new jobs due to the expansion which increases Hernon’s workforce by almost 50 percent.
“Governor Scott’s focus on permanently eliminating the sales tax on manufacturing equipment gives Hernon the ability to hire more employees and shows that he cares that every Floridian is able to get a job and succeed in Florida,” said Hernon President and chief executive officer Harry Arnon. “We’re happy that he is here with us today and look forward to hiring more employees at Hernon.”
