On April 30th, 2018, HM Manufacturing hosted the Job Creators Network’s “Tax Cuts Work” tour at our facilities in Wauconda, IL. Lead by Alfredo Ortiz, the JCN’s “Tax Cuts Work” tour is stopping in cities around the country to share the stories of businesses and Americans positively impacted by the recent tax cuts. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has helped millions of Americans and small businesses by relieving their tax burdens and allowing companies to invest in themselves and their workers. Congressman Randy Hultgren, joined by fellow-Congressman Peter Roskam, highlighted why they voted for the tax bill, and how they have already seen it positively impact their constituents.
State Senator McConchie was also in attendance to show his support for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
In addition to hosting the event, our President and CEO Nicole Wolter introduced Congressman Hultgren and detailed how HM has been benefitted from the tax cuts. Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, HM Manufacturing will be purchasing two pieces of equipment at IMTS, valued at over $500,000. We were able to send multiple employees for extra training to enhance not only their skill-set, but also increase their pay scale. Current employees have received pay raises, bonuses, and increased benefits along with new rewards and incentives programs. For instance, we are still able to provide employees with 100% paid health care. With the corporate tax rate reduced, we are able to grow and add to our workforce and machinery. HM Manufacturing recently updated our CAD/CAM software and machinery and opened a sales office in Santa Barbara, CA.
Austin Rabine, General Manager of Rabine Paving America and Kathy Gilmore, President of VIA, also provided their thoughts and insights on the new tax bill. Immediately following the event, Nicole Wolter gave Congressman Hultgren and other rally attendees a tour of HM Manufacturing’s facilities.
