On Monday at the White House, the President presented the highly-coveted and prestigious National Medals for Science and Technology. We are very proud to report that 3 of the 5 company winners were manufacturers (and all NAM members, by the way). They include:
— IBM Microelectrics Division – Somers, NY
— Motorola – Schaumberg, Ill.
— PACCAR, Inc. – Bellevue, Washington
They all have their stories, but the common thread is one of innovation and invention. We’ve profiled other Award winners here, namely Corning, in our fiber optic “Cool Stuff Being Made” video. They are all at the forefront of innovation. At the other end of that innovation is the prosperity we all enjoy. In the middle is the manufacturing process. We make stuff, we make prosperity. Thank a manufacturer if you get a chance. Click on the links above to read about the innovation and excellence that each manufacturer provided to society at large. It really is a great story — or, more accurately, three great stories. It’s a story being played out in thousands and thousands of manufacturing facilities in your states and towns.
Congratulations to all these award winners. They do all manufacturers proud.
