ALSIP, Ill. – State Rep. Mary Gill, D-Chicago, recently joined the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association and local officials in a visit of Uesco Industries, Inc. in celebration of Manufacturing Month in Illinois.

“Manufacturers create thousands of jobs and are a critical component of our state and local economy,” Gill said. “These businesses choose to invest in our communities, and it’s critical that we maintain a strong partnership. By prioritizing infrastructure, education and other essential services, we can continue to attract development and good paying jobs.”

Gill joined a visit of Uesco Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of custom-engineered crane and runway systems. The company, which has been based in Chicagoland since 1921, has been a staple of Alsip since 1978.

The visit was part of IMA’s “Makers on the Move” bus tour intended to showcase manufacturing in Illinois throughout Manufacturing Month. For more information, please visit or contact
