NAM’s Timmons Talks Manufacturing in Michigan

By May 30, 2013General

NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons talked about how to get manufacturing – and our economy – back on track for strong and sustainable growth at the 2013 Mackinac Policy Conference today in Michigan, where more than 1,500 of Michigan’s top business and government leaders are convening this week.

“Michigan gets it,” Timmons noted in today’s Detroit News editorial.  “With states competing to attract manufacturing facilities, Michigan is a great example of what can be done by improving the business climate.  With the right policies to help manufacturers grow and compete, the future of manufacturing is bright.”

Timmons’ panel at the conference, entitled “America’s Backbone: Bringing Manufacturing Back to the U.S.,” discussed policies that could help accelerate the manufacturing rebound.  His column this week in The Detroiter Magazine discussed the need to implement an aggressive agenda to make manufacturing in the U.S. more competitive.

Timmons also discussed the policies that will drive competitiveness and growth for manufacturing today on WJR’s Frank Beckmann Show. WJR is Michigan’s largest news talk radio station and broadcasts across the Midwest.
