Wisconsin Aluminum FoundryMANITOWOC, WI - Tomorrow at 10:00 AM, Manitowoc Mayor Justin Nickels will tour one of the Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry’s (WAF) plants and meet with CEO Sachin Shivaram, as well as members of the United Steel Workers Union, to discuss the impact of current trade climate on the local economy. The factories produce aluminum pieces primarily for gas and oil, farming, and automotive equipment. The companies that have bought WAF's specialty pieces for their equipment are now selling less due to the tariffs; that in turn is reducing their consumption of WAF products.

The negative impact from the trade war has had a ripple effect on the local economy. With farmers and small and medium businesses spending less and companies unable to fully fund their workforce, money that would otherwise be flowing through local communities is disappearing.

WHAT: Tour of an aluminum factory followed by a discussion with the owner and USW members about the negative impact of the trade climate on the local economy.

WHO: Manitowoc Mayor Justin Nickels, Wisconsin Aluminum Factory CEO Sachin Shivaram, USW Members

WHEN: TOMORROW October 14, 10:00 AM CT

WHERE: 838 S 16th St, Manitowoc, WI 54220
