Staub Manufacturing was recently in the national spotlight when Staub, his sister and co-founder Sandy Keplinger and skilled welder Corey Adams were guests of President Donald Trump at the 2018 State of the Union address.

Founded in 1895, the NAM is the largest industrial trade association in the United States with 14,000 members.

“I am honored to be a part of the NAM board and continue to fight for policies that will ensure our continued growth and success as manufacturers,” Staub said in a statement from NAM. “Washington, D.C., needs to understand how their policies affect the more than 12 million men and women employed in manufacturing. I can tell you firsthand how tax reform and regulatory relief empowered us to grow our business and give back to our workers.”

Staub “is truly a recognized and respected leader in our industry, and he will bring valuable insights to the NAM board of directors,” NAM president and CEO Jay Timmons said in the same statement. “Steve knows what manufacturers need to succeed in a complex global economy.”

Staub hails from a family of Dayton-area manufacturers and employs about 30 people. His sister, Sandy Keplinger, is the company’s vice president and co-owner. His brother, Ben Staub, is president and owner of Bastech Inc. and Rapid Direction Inc.
