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. [Linked Image]
