The Trimas Corporation: Keep Cequent in Goshen, IN and don't outsource to Mexico

      Michael Shook

      Sturgis, MI

This move will make all brands such as Reese, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch etc. will be solely produced in Mexico.The Cequent Company has made a profit of over $300 million last year. This is a perfect example of corporate greed and the underminining of the American economy. Although this story has reached the AP and local news channels so far it has not recieved national telivision news coverage. Americans can not compete with these wages. More and more companies will move South of the border unless we take a stand at some point. If you agree please share this with all of your friends so at least they know whether they are buying American or not when making a purchase.

      I have several relatives who live in the area, and they depend on this company for their livelihood. Also, I believe it is time for the American Business owner to prove that they are not as greedy as they are portrayed, and keep the jobs in the United States.

      Because it is exactly what is happening all over North America. It doesn't have to be a wholesale transfer, it can also be just a sale of business withing the US or Canada that results in devastation for communities and workers. No corporate responsibility!

      This will cause great harm to the workers in the plant and the city of Goshen Ind. so the Company can increase their profits in an already profitable enterprise.
