5) Less than two months after Fincantieri Marinette Marine landed a monumental frigate contract, President Donald Trump spoke to an estimated several hundred workers and invitees in an outside area that normally is used for modular assembly. It was the first time a sitting president has been in Marinette, WI. On April 30, the Department of Defense awarded a $795 million contract to build the first-in-class guided-missile frigates (FFGx) for the U.S. Navy, with an option for nine additional ships. The contract could be worth up to $5.5 billion and construction could continue for 15 years if all the options are exercised. Photo: Marinette Eagle Herald

6) The LCS Cooperstown is filled Thursday with some of the workers who built the ship at Fincanctieri Marinette Marine in Marinette, WI.  “We’re here today to celebrate a resounding victory for all of you, for Wisconsin, for the United States military,” Trump said. “Our entire nation is very proud of Wisconsin. Not long ago the future of this historic shipyard was looking — can I use the word bleak? — yes, it was bleak. It was down to 44 people and was getting ready to close up. And then a lot of good things came out. (FMM) is the mainstay of your community by far.”

Trump said the new contract will benefit FMM’s current 1,500 employees, and enable it to hire 1,000 more workers, along with triggering an estimated 9,000 new jobs through the Wisconsin supply chain.

“It’s one of the biggest contracts you’ve ever seen in the state,” he said. Photo: Marinette Eagle Herald.
