Engler Says Manufacturers Share President's Vision of Hope and Renewal

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 20, 2009 - John Engler, President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Association of Manufacturers, today congratulated President Barack Obama on his inauguration, and pledged that manufacturers will actively support the efforts of the new Administration to revive our economy, create and preserve American jobs, and strengthen America's competitiveness.

Engler said the NAM and its member companies were encouraged by the new President's address and optimistic about the future. He also commended the new President for reaching out to people across the political spectrum to forge a consensus that can meet the nation's number one overriding challenge - getting the economy growing again and creating jobs. "We pledge to work with the new Administration to pursue competitive tax policies that create jobs and economic growth, establish trade policies that expand markets for U.S. products overseas, and enact energy policies that decrease costs and reduce our dependence on foreign sources," Engler said.

Michael E. Campbell, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Arch Chemicals, Inc., of Norwalk, Connecticut, and NAM Chairman, said: "We know it will take a lot of work and time to get through this difficult period. We are eager to work with the new President and his Administration to do what is best for our country and America's working men and women. Together, we will turn the economy around and then get to work on the many long-term challenges we face."
