Company in Minneapolis leaving city after 33 Years : A Minneapolis manufacturing company, whose plant burned during record rioting following George Floyd’s death, is leaving the city after nearly 35 years and taking dozens of jobs with it.
The president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc. Kris Wyrobek felt obligated to do so after he says he lost trust in public officials during the riots that plagued the city, according to Star Tribune.
The company, which designs and manufactures polymer solutions and precision metal components, has been in Minneapolis since 1987. They will take 50 jobs with them and the city will effectively lose 50 jobs when Wyrobek takes his business elsewhere, according to the Minneapolis Star.
Wyrobek isn’t alone in his frustration. The city of Minneapolis says the looting and property damage have already caused at least $55 million in destruction so far.
