On behalf of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), I send my deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Ron Bullock, owner and chairman of Bison Gear & Engineering.
Beyond his leadership at Bison, Ron was committed to advancing the cause of manufacturing in the United States. I was proud to work alongside him at the NAM and The Manufacturing Institute in our efforts to strengthen the manufacturing workforce. As former chairman of the Institute, a member of the NAM Board of Directors and a member of our Workforce and Competitiveness Task Force, Ron gave generously of his time and energy to work selflessly to expand opportunity for all. Our industry is stronger thanks to Ron, and I know many lives have been changed for the better in Illinois and across the country, thanks to his support of our industry and his community. He will be missed at Bison, and we will miss him at the NAM.
