The trip to Youngstown, Ohio is part of Obama’s White House to Main Street tour. Prior to his speech, he will take a tour of the V & M Star Ohio facilities. According to The Youngstown Vindicator, the company, which manufacturers seamless tubes for the gas and oil industry, received $19 million in federal stimulus funds. It has embarked upon a $650 million expansion which will be completed in 2012 and create 400 construction jobs. The new facility is expected to employ 230 company employees and 120 contract workers.
