Alliance of Wyoming Manufacturers Joins NAM as State Partner

Washington, D.C., January 3, 2017 – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) welcomes the Alliance of Wyoming Manufacturers (AWM) as the association’s newest State Associations Group (SAG) member. The NAM’s SAG program consists of 51 independent state manufacturing, business and industry associations. With the AWM’s membership, the NAM has partnerships in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. 

“Wyoming’s contributions to the manufacturing economy are valuable and continuing to grow, and this partnership will be instrumental in supporting the success of manufacturing in the future,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “We are pleased to have the AWM as a strong statewide partner in Wyoming and recognize its crucial role in informing and advocating policies and regulations manufacturers need at both the federal and state level.”

The AWM supports the manufacturing industry in the state on matters of legislation and regulation that impact member businesses in Wyoming.

“Our new partnership with the NAM amplifies our advocacy efforts to promote pro-growth legislation and regulations that allow manufacturers to flourish in Wyoming,” said AWM Executive Director Robert Jensen. “We will stand together to fight against increases in taxes and unnecessary regulatory burdens that hamper our state’s manufacturers from expanding operations, creating jobs and contributing to our economy.”
