Jeopardized Goshen factory gets Congressional ally

A Goshen factory involved in a global fight for survival has enlisted an ally.

Gleason Industrial Products employs 165 workers at its plant in Goshen.

But the company claims those jobs are in jeopardy because of a trade dispute involving the anti-dumping status of a Chinese company.

Now Indiana 3rd district Congressman Mark Souder has written a harshly worded letter on the company's behalf--to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The letter objects to a preliminary decision to dramatically lower tariffs on a Chinese maker of hand-trucks.

The letter contends that the company is owned by the Chinese government, and that it concealed or faked evidence in order to lower its tariffs.
