Manufacturing in America: Building On Strength
About This Meeting
National Association of Manufacturers and Tenneco Inc. Chairman Gregg Sherrill spoke to the Detroit Economic Club on Wednesday, October 5th and shared his insights on where American manufacturing stands today. Sherrill discussed issues at the forefront of manufacturing, the global trends impacting the U.S. and where the next president’s future interests should be directed.
“[Both candidates] seem to know what most Americans instinctively know, that when manufacturing is strong, America is strong,” Sherrill said. “The most recent data shows [manufacturing] contributes $2.2 trillion to the U.S. economy last year. We employ 12.3 million people, we’re nine percent of the workforce… modern manufacturing in the U.S. is leading an innovation revolution.”
