“One of the biggest sources of friction is the growing divide between software and hardware. There is an absence of cooperation between software and hardware and there is a limitation in the amount of progress on productivity because of this.”

“You have to build the workforce you want – why do corporations wait for the workforce to show up? We need to build it!”

“Without empowering frontline workers to drive continuous improvement on the shop floor, American manufacturing will not be able to stay competitive. Automation has a role to play…but the future of manufacturing is still unapologetically human-centric.”

“I use SMEs to make my products. My suppliers are behind the times and use little digital technology. It’s painful, particularly, when you think about trying to track greenhouse gas emissions. It’s hard to gather and standardize the data through this complicated process.”

U.S manufacturing is at a transformational moment. A confluence of forces driven by technological advances, a changing geopolitical landscape and a new trajectory in public policy are leading to breakthrough innovations and substantial investments in domestic manufacturing the likes of which have not been seen for decades. Across core industries – whether transportation, energy, defense, materials, consumer products – there is a generational shift that is focused on greater resilience, digitalization, and sustainability.  

Over a trillion dollars have been committed by the public sector over the next decade in the country’s physical, technological and energy infrastructure in what amounts to a re-industrialization of the U.S. economy. Estimates suggest the private sector will more than match that with over $3 trillion invested over the next decade to transform the U.S. economy to clean energy. As leading public voices have underscored, “For America to decarbonize, it must reindustrialize.”  In addition, the U.S. military is investing in the expansion of the country’s industrial base for reasons of national and global security.
