A pioneer with many industry firsts including air-powered venturi power units, direct-loading of vacuum-tolerant process equipment, and vertical-wall Tube Hopper material receivers, the conveyor manufacturers facility was an ideal setting for the announcement.

Christie acknowledged VAC-U-MAX's 60 years of success, calling the manufacturer's workforce "great," and part of strength New Jersey's manufacturing sector. He then addressed anti-fraud and fiscal management practices that would prevent New Jersey employers from having to pay higher unemployment taxes.
