Important policies such as the R&D tax credit and bonus depreciation allow companies like Marlin Steel to invest in new technology and equipment. This investment helps create jobs not only with the companies purchasing the equipment but also the manufacturers of the equipment and all the way down the supply chain.

Yesterday’s event was a great opportunity for these members of Congress to see first-hand the impact of these policies.

  • Research and Development costs are extremely expensive. Often times research and development on development of lasers and other manufacturing equipment can cost millions of dollars. These costs are often times flushed away if the product they are being used for doesn’t turn out to be as important as expected.
    Having tax credits for research and development can be beneficial, but at the end of the day if a company wants to grow they need to reinvest. Reinvesting into new products is a gamble that you must make to try and stay ahead of the competition. Investing is a must to continue growing.
