Indiana Weighs In

By March 2, 2005Studies and Reports

No sooner was the ink dry on the California manufacturing study (see below), now comes major manufacturing state Indiana with a study of its own. Entitled, “What Indiana Makes, Makes Indiana”, the study, sponsored by NAM affiliate Indiana Manufacturers Association, the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership and the Indiana Department of Commerce, finds that a strong manufacturing base in Indiana is essential for jobs, revenue for communities and the state and is essential to supporting a high quality of life. In short, the study echoed and reinforced every other recent study that’s been done on manufacturing.

Here’s a link to a story by Norm Heikens in the Indianapolis Star on the study and here’s the link to the Executive Summary.

Congratulations especially to IMA President Pat Kiely for his continued leadership and passion for manufacturing.
