READING, PA —

Julia Klein, CEO of C.H. Briggs Co., an independently owned distributors of interior and specialty building products, was one of 70 business owners from across the country invited to a meeting at the White House on Feb. 17 marking the first anniversary of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, (ARRA), also known as the Stimulus.

C.H. Briggs has not been the direct recipient of any Stimulus dollars, but has benefited as investments have been made in public housing, military housing and hospitals, VA hospitals and base relocations and consolidation projects. “We are a living example of the multiplier effect that the Stimulus effort can have through the supply chain,” said Klein. “A hospital gets refurbished, architects and general contractors get hired, a subcontractor gets picked up to build the interiors, C.H. Briggs gets the supply order and in turn, we order from factories and we all keep people working.”
