A month of American manufacturing facts

Posted by LDonia on 09/04/2013

Manufacturing is not just integral to the American economy, it's also part of our national identity. As such, we want to pay respect to those who have worked long hours, both past and present in the sector.

From now until Manufacturing Day (Oct. 4) the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) will share an interesting manufacturing fact each day. The collection of facts and images will live here. Please share these with friends.
