Welspun: A headline maker

Posted By on Fri, Dec 24, 2010 at 6:27 AM

The Welspun pipe factory in Little Rock, where a worker was killed and another was injured this week, has been the subject of controversy before. Following is research provided by a local reader. Stipulated: Lawsuits are merely allegations; allegations about worksmanship have been contested by the company; issues here are not related directly to workplace safety. However, more corporate background.

* A contract lawsuit.

* A report on use of substandard steel by pipeline industry in which Welspun figures.

* Disputes in Texas on product quality and sales practices.

* Commentary on pipe provided by Welspun for a pipeline crossing South Dakota.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
