Way to go Weir Minerals
I was reading the paper today about a proposed expansion at Weir Minerals (a mine equipment manufacturer), what a refreshing story. They are going to file a permit application with the DNR. They are not asking for a rule change like Ashley Furniture, Cabela's, Gogebic Mine,... They are not asking for a government handout unlike say the Edgewater hotel, but if money is available they'll take it. They are going to provide some high paying jobs unlike other companies that get government handouts like Walmart in Monona, Beaver Dam, ... All that I can say is that Weir is building it on their own and being a good citizen about it as well. Maybe this is due to the fact that they are a British company and they have different values.
