our message
Our Message
  • Manufacturing is critically important to the US economy and standard of living.
  • We are challenged as never before, here and abroad.
  • Before you vote/take action ask yourself “will this make US manufacturing more or less competitive?”
  • We will be watching how you vote and
  • We will be informing our employees.
“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.”


  • “The penalty that good men pay for not being interested in politics is to be governed by men worse than themselves.”
