PHOENIX, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IO President Anthony Wanger today is testifying before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Small Business at a hearing on small business and manufacturing in the United States. Wanger will discuss IO's experiences as a company with an expanding American workforce that supports innovative domestic manufacturing operations and develops leading-edge software.

Wanger's Congressional appearance is part of a hearing titled, "Made in the USA: Stories of American Manufacturers." The House hearing, being held in concert with the Small Business Administration's National Small Business Week, will highlight the reemergence and accomplishments of American manufacturers.

At the hearing, Wanger will present on how IO's products and technology are "Made in the USA." IO manufactures its IO.Anywhere data center modules exclusively in Chandler, Ariz., and the company utilizes a domestic workforce to write its IO.OS data center operating system software. IO products are delivered anywhere in the world to power cloud computing strategies for customers.

IO employs a large and growing workforce from a diverse array of highly skilled professional sectors. In addition, IO generates significant employment via its IO Ecosystem of strategic partners.

IO chose to locate its manufacturing operations in the United States because highest quality production and stringent quality control are essential to its business model. Also, IO wants to be part of America's economic solution in providing opportunity for people skilled in math and science who are looking to change the data center industry.

"Our existing operations, distributed sales forces and ongoing expansion activities give IO a front row view of the interplay between small business and global markets, and its associated impact on local communities across America. The United States is the global leader in technology and IO is honored to join a great legacy of American innovation and achievement as we help customers build out the global Internet," said Wanger.
