Manitowoc Company, city's 2nd largest employer, moving 500 jobs to the Keystone State

Once upon a time, the Mirro Corporation employed more than 2,000.   The cookware manufacturer closed this production facility in 2003.

500 to lose jobs at Manitowoc Company.  (Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter, 8/11/2016)
Where's WEDC when you really need them.  "It will be a real dent in our community," Reis said of the loss of crawler crane manufacturing in Manitowoc. "We lost Hamilton, we lost Mirro and this is another thing we are losing. These are high-paying jobs, and we're losing the professionals associated with it. To me, it is a sad day from a community standpoint, because we need all the companies we can have here."
