NPR Starts Month-Long Series of Special Reports About U.S. Manufacturing

American Made: The New Manufacturing Landscape

As Manufacturing Day 2014 approaches, our energy and enthusiasm received a huge boost today from National Public Radio (NPR).

NPR_News_logoWe were pleasantly surprised when today’s drive-time broadcast featured the first report in what will be a month-long series. The series is entitled: American Made: The New Manufacturing Landscape.  If you miss the series on-air, you can follow it online.

Today’s report is about Rochester, NY, which was once the imaging capital of the world, home to Kodak, Xerox and Bausch + Lomb. Changes in imaging technology altered the fortunes of Kodak and Xerox, decimating Rochester’s manufacturing base. The city, however, hasn’t lost its focus on manufacturing; instead it is reinventing itself, refocusing, and trying to build something new. Read or listen to the Rochester story online.

NPR is supporting manufacturing, so tune and support NPR. In the process, you’ll learn about some of the challenges, opportunities, and exciting developments in our sector.
