06/22/2020- President Donald Trump will be in the area this week. The Commander in Chief is slated to travel to Marinette Thursday to visit Fincantieri Marinette Marine, with plans to tour the shipyard and deliver remarks. President Trump is expected to discuss his Administration’s actions to expand the local shipyard, as well as his overall commitment to strengthen the nation’s defense industrial base. Recently, Marinette Marine secured a contract to construct 10 new naval ships for up to $5.5 billion. As a result of this contract, Fincantieri plans to invest over $200 million in Wisconsin and aid in the creation of thousands of additional jobs in the immediate region and across the Wisconsin and Michigan supply chains.
