As Americans get ready to celebrate Labor Day, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the unified voice for manufacturing, is leveraging its power of communications channels to focus the nation on the people who are America’s pride and future: the innovators and makers.
- NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons issued this statement to highlight the issues that are critical to maintaining America’s mantle of economic leadership in the world.
- As part of our Power of Small campaign, Drew Greenblatt, owner of a state-of-the-art small manufacturer in Baltimore, Md., Marlin Steel Wire Products, and a member of the NAM Executive Committee, has a piece in INC. Magazine, touching on the value of small manufacturers in our country and calling on our leaders to step up and lead with action on urgent policy needs, such as Rethinking Red Tape.
- Only at the NAM, in our ShopTalk series, our chief economist talks manufacturing jobs, current economic trends in the industry while our senior vice president of policy and government relations talks about how the legislative environment can play a role in shaping or hurting growth in the industry.
More than 12 million Americans invent, create and build a better future right here in the United States. Through their talent, perseverance and passion, they improve the human condition, strengthen our communities and transform our world. They’re creating opportunities for the next generation—with unlimited potential, to be whatever they can dream because they can make it in manufacturing. That’s why, at the NAM, we treat every day like Labor Day, honoring the work of manufacturers with an association that always strives to live up to, and to extend, their example.
