Welcome to the NAM Resource Center. Please visit often for updated manufacturers resources and manufacturing industry data. The U.S is the world’s largest manufacturing economy, producing 22 percent of the world’s manufactured products. U.S. manufacturing employs nearly 12 million workers and contributes more than $1.6 trillion to the U.S. economy annually. It is the largest driver of economic growth in the nation and accounts for the lion’s share of private sector research and development. Manufacturing’s record of expanded exports kept the United States economy strong throughout our history, and U.S. manufacturing’s trade activity remains a source of economic strength.

The NAM offers a variety of manufacturers’ resources that support and advance the manufacturing agenda and highlight the vital role of manufacturing in our nation’s economic vitality. These resources range from economic statistics and manufacturing industry data to analysis of recent manufacturing related court cases and policy issue one-pagers.
