Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons released the following statement on the results of the 2012 election:

The President talked about manufacturing throughout his campaign as he has during his first term in office, and we will continue to urge the Administration to achieve real results to bring about a manufacturing renaissance.
We’ll work with the Administration to double exports, on ways to strengthen our workforce and prepare Americans for jobs in modern manufacturing. We will also continue to make our case for pro-growth energy and tax policies, and for common-sense regulation.
Manufacturers also congratulate the new members of the 113th Congress. There is much work ahead of us, and manufacturers are ready to help the President and all elected leaders succeed in turning our economy around. After all, it is time for our nation to heal and for Americans to come together.”
