Robert Couch sent a message to Matthew S Levatich that said:
As a retired now disabled American who never had a Harley but always wanted to, I call on you to reconsider your "growth and investment" strategies as alluded to by Mr. Levatich regarding closing the Kansas plant and moving manufacturing business to Thailand :
"Chief Executive Officer Matt Levatich said, âWe would rather not make the investment in that facility, but thatâs whatâs necessary to access a very important market. It is a direct example of how trade policies could help this company, but we have to get on with our work to grow business by any means possible, and thatâs what weâre doing."
How much money is necessary and enough? I understand the push and drive of investors and caring for the families of all employees, but is investing and re-investing in the country that made HD possible not as wise a strategy? Where are the lines between greed and loyalty; common sense and good business sense? Please manufacture products in the USA.
I'm not a man of means, but I am a man who cares deeply about God, my country, and my fellow man, including you all.
Thank you for your time and, I hope, your consideration. May God bless you and America again.
