Last month, the company, owned by the Pullan family, signed a multimillion-dollar, five-year contract with the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York.

 

"The Pullan family, along with all the employees of Jamestown Mattress are extremely excited and honored to have this opportunity," said Jim Pullan Jr. of Jamestown Mattress. "We look forward to serving the State University of New York colleges across the state for many years to come."

NAM, Chamber Welcome Senate Efforts to Reauthorize Ex-Im Bank

by Jamie Hennigan

 

Washington, D.C., March 20, 2015 – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Director of Trade Facilitation Policy Lauren Airey and U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director of International Policy Christopher Wenk issued the following joint statement on introduction of two Senate bills for a long-term reauthorization of the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank:

 

“The introduction of a bipartisan long-term Ex-Im reauthorization bill by Sens. Mark Kirk (R-IL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) and a second long-term reauthorization bill by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Tom Udall (D-NM) is an important and welcome step in ensuring that manufacturers will have the tools they need to compete in a tough global economy. The Ex-Im Bank, operating at no cost to

taxpayers, fills a much-needed gap in export credit financing in the United States—one that private banks cannot fill. We hope this legislation will spur quick Senate action on the Ex-Im Bank in the coming weeks, and we applaud the authors of the two bills for

their leadership on this important issue.” – NAM Director of Trade Facilitation Policy Lauren Airey

 

“The U.S. Chamber applauds the introduction of these two bills in the Senate that would secure a long-term reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank. Ex-Im is one of the most vital tools available to U.S. companies to help them increase exports and create jobs. For the

small and medium-sized businesses that rely on Ex-Im to secure commercial financing, legislation to renew the bank’s charter can’t be passed soon enough. We urge Congress to swiftly pass legislation to renew the Ex-Im’s charter and allow American

companies to compete and win in international markets.” – U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director of International Policy Christopher Wenk
