American Made: The Renaissance in U.S. Manufacturing 

Manufacturing still matters in the United States—it drives 35% of productivity growth, 60% of exports, and 70% of private R&D and remains at the core of American innovation and technical prowess. After a surge in the late 1990s, American manufacturing experienced two decades of erosion in many sectors, as the sector shed almost one-third of its jobs. But reformed policies, advanced technology, and new business models are combining to create the opportunity for accelerated growth in productivity, output, and value added. Capturing these opportunities will not be easy, but the right combination of policy, people, and investment promises a rebirth of “American made,” with all the ingenuity and excellence the name implies. How will this rebirth create opportunities for lubricants in your marketplace?
