Tom Maxwell speaking to stockholders

News about the local economy has been a mix of good and bad, Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust President Tom Maxwell told the bank’s stockholders during the annual meeting of F&M Bankshares Inc., Tuesday, Feb. 8.

  Maxwell said the best news the community has received was the announcement by the Navy, Dec. 29, that Lockheed Martin and Marinette Marine have been awarded a multi-million dollar contract to build 10 more Littoral Combat Ships.

  “The Lockheed Martin team received a $491 million contract that could be worth as much as $4 billion when all options are exercised,” Maxwell said. “Right now there are about 850 employees at Marinette Marine. This contract should add up to 1,000 jobs locally. Hiring would start late this summer with about 45 (people) hired each month.”

  In addition, at least 250 subcontractors in the area will be involved in the project and they too will be adding jobs.

  “This is the most significant economic news in years,” Maxwell added. “It will not only create jobs, but increase retail sales, increase home values, increase school enrollment, and generate additional tax revenue for state and local governments.”

  Maxwell cited other recent job growth in the community.
·        Waupaca Foundry, one of Marinette’s major employers, has seen an increase in orders and as a result hired about 120 new employees. The workforce there now has grown to 725.
·        Nu Vu Food Service Systems in Menominee, which manufactures ovens nationally for Subway, has announced it will be hiring to fill new jobs that have been created.
·        Anchor Coupling, a major Menominee employer, has also hired additional workers.
·        And work continues on Ansul’s Engineering Center for Excellence at the company’s test field site.

  The most discouraging economic news is that some local industries are struggling with layoffs and shortened work weeks for employees.

  Maxwell is looking ahead to the remainder of 2011 with “cautious optimism.” “We’re still in a recession with high unemployment and a depressed housing market - we’re not out of the woods yet,” he concluded. “The Marinette Marine contract – while it’s fantastic news – it’s going to take a while for the benefits to be felt, probably the better part of a year before we see any affects from that.”
