Vice President Joe Biden visited Cree to discuss the Obama administration’s commitment to fighting for issues important to America’s middle class families, including creating well-paying manufacturing jobs and building the clean energy economy. Cree, based in Durham, North Carolina, is a market-leading manufacturer of LED (light-emitting diode) products.
Vice President Biden toured Cree’s facilities with Chuck Swoboda, chairman and chief executive officer of Cree, and spoke with employees about the benefits of working for a green technology company and their concerns about the economy.
“The ongoing support from the Obama administration is important as we promote the value of energy efficiency and sustainability in today’s economy,” said Swoboda. “Cree is creating American clean-tech jobs right now, as we continue to lead the LED lighting revolution.”
