(9-22-19) Not since Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon has Wapakoneta had so much national attention. Today US President Donald Trump and Austrailian Prime Minister Scott Morrison had a successful visit to Wapakoneta to tour the new Pratt Industries plant.
The factory is being opened by Anthony Pratt, an Australian businessman who is reportedly investing billions of dollars in the United States to create thousands of manufacturing jobs.
During the joint speech –
“Ohio is open for business. When this plant is fully operational, hundreds of Ohioans will have good wages and retirement. One in four workers in this plant is a veteran – a great American veteran – I’m proud to say. (Pratt) knows what he’s doing.”
Pratt Industries CEO Anthony Pratt said –
“If it wasn’t for your presidency, this mill would not be here today.”
