Happy to see this commitment to the plant. But remember when companies didn't need a government grant to train workers on new equipment the company buys? That used to be a core responsibility of companies.

This is good news. Now the rest of the business community needs to follow Gerdeau's lead and start hiring and investing in growth.

I love it. The Brazilians are outsourcing to the US.

If a US company bought a factory in a foreign country, would their govt pay for worker training? Than we ship the product back to the US. We get it cheaper than if we bought it from a foreign owned company.

This will date me, but I worked at that plant for 3 years, '68-'70 when it was North Star Steel. Glad to see that it is still in operation and has a bright future. Good for St.Paul.
