The Senator discussed job creation among other topics with community leaders and Altec staff.
"We're trying to draw attention...to making things again," Blunt said. "Here's a great example of a company that's been making things a long time."
Altec happily welcomed the Senator.
"It's important for our government officials to know what we do at Altec so we have a connection with them and they have a connection with us," Regional Vice-President David Masters said.
Blunt also discussed energy and the economy in his short visit.
He toured a facility in Kansas City shortly after.
