May 13, 2019 / IndustryWeek
On May 10, U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Chris Coons (D-DE) announced a new bipartisan bill whose intent is to increase America’s global competitiveness in advanced manufacturing. The Global Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing Act would expand the national network of Manufacturing USA institutes.
The Manufacturing USA program is a national network of 14 public-private partnership institutes with 1,300-member companies and institutions working to keep the U.S. on the cutting edge of advanced manufacturing. The institutes collaborate with member companies, academic institutions, trade associations, and government partners to develop new best practices in manufacturing, help transition innovative technologies from lab to market, and expand the production of goods made in America.
