ARLINGTON, VA – National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) President Eric R. Byer issued a statement on Saturday, Nov. 7, regarding the U.S. election results.

In the statement, Byer said, “NACD and its members congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their historic victory in this past week’s election.

“The association looks forward to working with the Biden/Harris administration to implement important safety, health and environmental priorities. We hope the new administration will work with Congress to coalesce around a long-term infrastructure program, renew the GSP program and relax the tariffs on products from China, among other priorities.

“Chemical distributors are an important part of the fabric of the American manufacturing supply chain. Through NACD’s Responsible Distribution program, they work extremely hard to protect the health, safety, environmental and security of their employees and facilities. We stand ready to work with the Administration, new Congress and regulatory agencies to ensure we continue to operate safe workplaces.”
