December 18, 2018, Dayton, OH – The co-owners of Staub Manufacturing Solutions, a Dayton-area contract manufacturing company serving top OEM’s with production sheet-metal fabrication services, attended a Christmas reception at the White House on December 17th.
Brother and sister team, Sandy Keplinger and Steve Staub, and their spouses, were special guests at a White House Christmas reception on Monday. The invitation-only party began in the elegantly decorated East Wing and included a self-guided tour of the red, green and blue rooms. Guests got to experience two orchestras, a men’s choir and a wide selection of delicious foods and pastries.
“We’re humbled to be included in an event like this and glad that our President cares about the manufacturing industry and small businesses like ours,” Steve Staub said. “The White House created an amazing experience for us all. From the Military Orchestra that greeted us to the hallway of red cranberry trees, everything about this event was excellent.”
“The decorations were absolutely beautiful and the food was amazing!” Sandy Keplinger said. “We are just so honored to have this opportunity. It was a once in a lifetime experience!”
Near the end of the party, President Trump and the First Lady addressed the partygoers, welcoming them to “our home” and wished everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Happy New Year.
“To spend the evening like this with our country’s leadership and heroes, like several Congressional Medal of Honor recipients we saw there, is something that we’ll never forget,” Steve Staub said.
The party of about 500, included other notable guests such as Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, Former Governor Chris Christie, White House Advisor, Kellyanne Conway and Radio Personality, Rush Limbaugh.
This is not the first time that members of the STAUB team have been in Washington or the White House. Earlier this year, Steve, Sandy and Corey Adams were guests of the First Lady for the State of the Union address.
