Although a recently approved small shipyard grant is for Fincantieri Marinette Marine, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin says its impact will be felt throughout the region including Door County. The Democratic Senator from Wisconsin announced the $1.1 million grant from the United States Department of Transportation last week. Grants like these help shipyards repair and modernize their equipment while improving their efficiency and productivity. Senator Baldwin says that is good news for businesses in Sturgeon Bay.
Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay was awarded a similar grant last year for nearly $2 million.
