The NAM is the voice for more than 12 million men and women who make things in America. For 120 years, our influential association has led the manufacturing community in striving for a pro-business, pro-growth economy. The NAM forges and maintains relationships with Congress, the Administration, the media and the public—in Washington and beyond the Beltway—that enable our successful educational and advocacy efforts.
