Brea, California – Last week, Congressman Gil Cisneros (D-CA-39) visited ESCA member Proponent at their headquarters in Brea, CA. The Congressman met with Proponent employee-owners, toured the company’s distribution facility, and discussed their aerospace operations. The visit centered on the central role local distributors serve in the community and learning about the role of employee ownership at the company. President and CEO Andrew Todhunter spoke with the Congressman on key issues directly impacting the company and asked for the Congressman’s support in becoming a cosponsor of H.R. 2258.

Congressman Cisneros signed on to H.R. 2258, the Promotion & Expansion of Private Employee Ownership Act, on Friday.


“It was a pleasure to meet with Proponent, a key driver of aerospace manufacturing and development in the 39th District,” said Rep. Cisneros. “I’m proud to support and highlight Proponent’s contributions to our local economy and I will continue to be an advocate for them and all our local manufacturers.”

“At Proponent, our employee-owners come to work every day knowing the company belongs to them and that they play an essential role in its success,” said Todhunter. “We were proud to host Rep. Cisneros today and appreciate the opportunity to show him firsthand what it’s like to be a member of our team!”

Proponent is the world’s largest independent aerospace distribution company, with a product portfolio that consists of over 400,000 high quality aircraft parts. The company has 350 employee-owners across the country and is 100% employee owned. Proponent joined ESCA in 2012.
