Vice President Mike Pence visits Manitowoc Company

01 August 2019

Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States, addressed over 1,000 Manitowoc employees regarding the critical urgency to ratify the United States-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA). 

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers and The Manitowoc Company, Inc., hosted Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States, at Manitowoc’s Shady Grove facility on Thursday, August 1, to discuss the USMCA and how this new trade deal will benefit Pennsylvania and all of America.

Equipment manufacturers support 1.5 million jobs in the US and Canada. Overall, there are 12 million U.S. jobs across the country that are supported by trade with Canada and Mexico. A study by the United States International Trade Commission shows the USMCA would create an additional 176,000 U.S. jobs and add $68 billion to the U.S. economy.
