Dan Bourget, worldwide general manager of ITW Dynatec, an adhesive application manufacturing company, travels from Hendersonville to the Nashville airport at least once a week and is one of those people who would be willing to pay a toll to cross into Davidson County more quickly.
"I think it would be a blessing," Bourget
said about a toll bridge."It would be huge for us."
"It's horrible for me.If I have an 8 o'clock in the morning flight I have to leave at 4 a.m. just to get there."
"I don't think it would matter what the toll was, it would be worth it," Bourget
said."It's not so much the delay as the variability of the delay" in getting to the airport from Sumner County.
agreed that easier airport access would be a major attraction for business and industry.
"Our customers are always asking how far away are we from the airport," Bourget
said."The distance isn't so much of a factor as the roads.I think that would help us.We have customers in every week from around the world.
"I think businesses looking to relocate here, and I've been in on a couple of those visits, they want to know how long does it take for their customers to get here from the airport.That would be a big help," Bourget

ITW Dynatec General Manager Dan Bourget said a conference center in Hendersonville would be useful to the business community.
"I think it would be a good thing," said Bourget
."I think we would use it."Bourget
could see his
company using the facility for technical seminars as well as conferences, sales meetings and other company functions.He
recently needed to book a facility that could hold 30 to 40 people and had to go to Nashville because a suitable facility was not available.
"I like to try to give the local hotels my business as much as possible, but we had to go out of the county because we just couldn't find a suitable space," Bourget
said."Obviously my dollars went out of Hendersonville and Sumner County and I'm not happy about that." Bourget
was also interested in the entertainment attractions the conference center may offer.
"I have customers every week and we end up going to Nashville a lot," Bourget
was excited about the concept of Sumner Point
overall and believed the development would make an excellent addition to the Hendersonville community.
"To me, it's a quality of life thing," Bourget
said."Anytime we can improve the quality of life for our employees its a good thing.And it nice to have nice amenities nearby to use to encourage other engineers to come work for us and help us recruit new employees."
As far as whether the city of Hendersonville should be willing to pay for a new conference center, Bourget
said the city and county should talk to the business community and see if the need was great enough to warrant such a facility.
"They need to talk to businesses and determine if it is necessary to build a facility like this in order to keep more tax dollars in Hendersonville," Bourget
