Aderholt stops in Fort Payne

U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Haleyville, and State Sen. Steve Livingston toured the GameTime facility in Fort Payne this week. They asked questions of GameTime President Spencer Cheak and were joined by DeKalb County Economic Development Executive Director Jimmy Durham. Aderholt said he enjoys visiting businesses in the Fourth Congressional District so he can better understand their needs. Livingston said it was interesting to revisit the half-million square foot manufacturing operation 10 months after touring it during the plant’s 40th Anniversary celebration and seeing the impact of COVID-19 on their operations since then. Cheak pointed out ways GameTime has adapted with rapid testing and visitor screening, deep cleaning and other actions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to mitigate any spread of infection in their facilities and ensure that employees and customers are safe and cared for as the situation evolves. Like all companies, GameTime is also adapting its supply chain as it continues to watch the situation closely and take guidance from the CDC, national and local authorities.
