Local manufacturers are hoping hiring can start to catch up with the demands of its customers. Some companies are several people short on staff, forcing management to get creative with recruiting new employees and keeping up with orders. N.E.W. Industries owner Chris Moore says the problem is not unique to the entire country, let alone Sturgeon Bay. He says it has been the most challenging it has been during his time in manufacturing.
Moore says he appreciates the efforts of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, local technical colleges and high schools in helping make manufacturing an attractive career to pursue.
