“Companies like Kuhn North America are critical to moving not only our Made in Wisconsin manufacturing economy forward, but also to ensuring our farmers have the tools they need to bring their products efficiently to market,” said Senator Baldwin. “As we work to finalize legislation to build a Made in America supply chain and bring manufacturing jobs back to America, I was excited to visit KUHN today to highlight how we can better support Wisconsin manufacturers who help move our agriculture economy forward. I look forward to passing the Bipartisan Innovation Act because it will accelerate the domestic production of critical components for KUHN’s equipment.”
