U.S. Congressman Paul Ryan toured CNH Industrial‘s plant in Racine, WI last week. He met with management, toured the plant, and attended a town hall forum.
Congressman Ryan chairs the Ways and Means Committee in the US House. He met with chief officers and members of CNH Industrial’s North American management team to discuss manufacturing and trade issues.
“Our employees around the world are tied together by a common purpose, to be a leading provider of products and services to professional industrial equipment and commercial vehicle customers,” said Richard Tobin, Chief Executive Officer of CNH Industrial. “Congressman Ryan is attuned to the needs of our company and has been a supporter of trade policies that will continue to allow our products to compete in both our domestic and export markets.”
“There is robust demand for Wisconsin-made goods across the globe and we need to make sure our businesses and workers successfully reach the 96 percent of consumers that live outside the U.S.,” said First District Congressman Paul Ryan. “There is no doubt that Wisconsin’s manufacturers, including CNH Industrial, will benefit from expanded trade policies.”
The Racine plant manufactures equipment for CNH Industrial’s agriculture brands, including Case IH and New Holland Agriculture. They employ approximately 2,400 workers, who were able to voice opinions and ask the congressman questions during a town hall meeting that followed the plant tour. Participants discussed manufacturing, trade issues, and economic issues. The congressman was also treated to a ride and drive in a new Case IH Magnum Rowtrac.
