Read where Hubbell/Wiegmann plant in Freeburg, IL lost $2M last year and may close down. Spokesman said they cannot compete with Hoffman under present union contract.

What does Hubbell/Weigman manufacture?

I know Hubbell/Bryant makes wiring devices....I hope that one doesn't go out of business....I like their stuff.

They make high quality enclosures.

Is it contract time?

Is it possible that the management is doing a little pre-emptive posturing?

Is it possible that under NAFTA, they're going to move the whole works down to Mexico?
Did you say high-quality?
