2022 Manufacturers' Summit Celebrates Manufacturing; Highlights Opportunities and Challenges
27 Oct 2022
Recently, the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce celebrated Manufacturing Month with its annual Manufacturers’ Summit. Manufacturing leaders from across the state heard from renowned speakers like Jay Timmons, President and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers, and Michael Happe, President and CEO of Winnebago Industries.
And there was plenty of good news to celebrate during Manufacturing Month. “Manufacturers have now recovered all of the jobs the industry lost at the start of the pandemic, and then some, and that's quite an accomplishment," said Timmons. “There are now more than 12.8 million people working in manufacturing nationwide.” He went on to share how three-quarters of manufacturers still have a positive outlook for their companies.
