Many of the policy decisions made over the last eight years have been extraordinarily difficult for manufacturers. Now it’s time for a reset—and a better direction. “Competing to Win” is a policy roadmap that expresses the priorities of manufacturers in the United States,” says the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

The head of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) praised the administration of President Donald Trump, saying its policies have given manufacturing more confidence. “Today, we’re going for the gold,” Jay Timmons, president of NAM (Washington) said during a speech at the Troy, MI per Advanced Manufacturing.
