IPC Applauds President Obama for Recognizing Manufacturing’s Key Role in U.S. Job Creation Statement from John Mitchell, IPC President and CEO

Jan 17, 2016

On behalf of the 800,000 people employed throughout our 2,200 member facilities in the United States, IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® commends President Obama for highlighting the critical and continuing contribution of the manufacturing sector to the U.S. economy, in his final State of the Union address.

  “Manufacturing has created nearly 900,000 new jobs in the past six years,” said President Obama during his remarks on the strengthening economy.

  He went on to praise the newly created National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) as an engine for entrepreneurship and further job growth, noting, “We've launched next-generation manufacturing hubs.”

  IPC’s vocal advocacy helped spur the creation of the NNMI, which enjoys strong bipartisan support and will help modernize the U.S. manufacturing ecosystem and increase America’s competitiveness worldwide. Today, IPC is proud to be a partner in the NNMI’s Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII).
