Assembly person A.J. Russell,
and Michael Allen, MetalCraft General Manager
listen as Senator Schumerpraises MetalCraft Marine's contribution to Cape
Vincent and the North Country economy.
Shumer said, "I am here to announce that I will fight to the end so that MetalCraft Marine receives the investment that they need from the federal government which will help them grow even more. It's a smart investment that would return two-fold the benefits and jobs right here in the North Country. So, let me tell you. MetalCraft is seeking a $800,000 small shipyard grant from the Maritime Administration which is part of the Department of Transportation to meet their ever-expanding manufacturing demands in the hiring of skilled workers....MetalCraft is a match made in heaven. This is just the kind of company they had in mind."

MetalCraft is just getting started in Cape Vincent and already employees 14 people. The grant and recent new orders for three seventy-footers will, in the near future, double MetalCraft's Cape Vincent work force.
