Jason Schlagel operates a bridge mill at Springs Fab, where Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will be Saturday.

Springs Fabrication, Inc., a Colorado Springs manufacturing plant, will be a campaign stop Saturday for Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

But it’s not the first time a presidential candidate has chosen to stump from the Springs manufacturing business, owned by  CEO Tom Neppl.

Arizona Sen. John McCain made a stop there during his 2008 presidential campaign.

Showing support for manufacturing has the potential to win a lot of votes, apparently.

Neppl was contacted by the Romney campaign to be the host of the “grassroots rally.” His 100,000-square-foot plant provides a wide-open space for folks to gather and meet the candidate.

Neppl started his company in a garage 25 years ago. Today he has 160 employees and delivers products across the country to a wide range of industries, including new and existing energy, government and military, and mining and remediation, has been the cornerstone of continued success
