Excerpt: COMMENTS OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MANUFACTURERS BEFORE THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON COMMERCE, MANUFACTURING AND TRADECOMMITTEE ON ENERGY & COMMERCEU.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES MARCH 3, 2011
Good morning, Chairman Bono Mack, Ranking Member Butterfield, members of the subcommittee. My name is Drew Greenblatt, and I am President of Marlin Steel Wire Products, LLC, based in Baltimore, Maryland. I appreciate the opportunity to testify today on behalf of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the nation’s largest manufacturing trade association. We represent some 12,000 member companies and affiliates in the 50 states, businesses in all industry sectors and of all sizes.
We heartily support your committee’s emphasis on job creation, because manufacturing means jobs. Manufacturing also means opportunity, innovation, security and economic growth. Competing on a global stage, manufacturing in the United States needs to have policies that enable companies to thrive and hire locals. Growing manufacturing jobs will strengthen the U.S. middle class and help America rebound from the deep recession.
