INSOURCING: As Congress closes in on banning railcars (and possibly buses) from Chinese-subsidized companies, the China General Chamber of Commerce-Chicago gave the U.S. subsidiary of the massive China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation its “Employer of the Year” award last week. The award recognized CRRC Sifang America’s “investment in local hiring, extensive high-tech training for its workforce, and successful effort to return passenger railcar manufacturing jobs to Chicago after a more than 50-year absence.” The company employs about 80 workers at its new facility on the southeast side of Chicago.
