Cory Gardner: Brewery Worried Aluminum Tariffs Will Offset Good from the Tax Cuts
GARDNER: "Exactly right. Colorado has a steel mill that is foreign owned and also has some finishing work that it does out of Canada. That season even clear because of the complication of steel tariffs coupled with nafta concerns. As you mentioned aluminum use and manufacturing. We have a company called Trinidad head quartered in Denver, Colorado, that forms aluminum things you might buy at a grocery store. Aluminum fill products. They’re head quartered with hundreds of jobs in Denver across the country. If you look at ball, lot of people understand ball when they look at a can, it’s made by ball. That’s head quartered in Colorado. Look at Coor’s brewing company the concern they have over the price of aluminum. I talked to a small brewery in Colorado they’re going to see significant, significant advantages as a result of the tax cuts. They actually hired more people this week because the money they saved through the tax cuts."
