Vanishing Industry in Cedar Rapids

Just outside of downtown Cedar Rapids is a complex of once lively manufacturing buildings. Now these structures are either being torn down or being renovated for other purposes. The point is that medium to large manufacturing companies that were present in many Midwestern cities are disappearing like this Cedar Rapids Inc., property. Business evolution continues but what skillsets or abilities have been lost or shipped outside our borders?

  1. Mr.4444 often laments about the loss of trade skills for his industry; they are always looking for engineers and machinists.
