Florida Governor Rick Scott was in Sanford on Tuesday morning to attend the ribbon cutting at Hernon Manufacturing’s facility expansion today. Hernon develops performance adhesives, sealants and dispensing equipment and will add 20 new jobs at it’s facility raising it’s workforce to about 70.
“This is exciting” Scott said “They’ve got about 50 employees here and now they’re going to get to over 70 right here in Sanford. Congratulations to them.”
Seminole County has been home to some of Scott’s biggest jobs victories. Recent expansions to companies like Verizon and Mitsubishi have made the Governor a frequent visitor to the area.
Many business owners credit Scott’s tax cuts.
“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. We’re happy that he is here with us today and look forward to hiring more employees at Hernon.” said Harry Arnon, President & Chief Executive Officer of Hernon.
