Troy, Michigan – Today, National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons delivered the 2018 State of Manufacturing Address at Automation Alley in Troy, Michigan. The speech kicks off a two-week national tour that will discuss industry advances as well as challenges facing the manufacturing sector in the coming years, including the rise of misguided lawsuits against manufacturers spurred on by a coalition of special interests.
“There’s a growing trend, an alliance of activists, plaintiffs’ attorneys and politicians going after manufacturing companies with frivolous, misguided lawsuits. The lawyers want to make money; the politicians want to make headlines.”
“At the NAM, we’re not letting this go unchallenged. That’s why we launched the Manufacturers’ Accountability Project to hold the actors accountable. We’re going to fight back because there’s too much at stake.”
“Over the past decade, the United States has made greater reductions in greenhouse gasses than any nation on earth. We’re proving that environmental stewardship and economic growth can go hand in hand.”
