How We Work For You

Manufacturers across the country need representation, insights and analysis and dedicated advisors, ready to serve as an extension of your team, that only the NAM provides. Our work is serious, but, as this NAM-membership explainer video shows, we don’t always take ourselves seriously.

What We Provide

For more than 125 years, we’ve delivered results for manufacturers. Today, we’re helping manufacturers advance tax reform, navigate supply chain challenges, regulatory uncertainty and even cyber threats and more. We’re supporting manufacturers to learn from each other. We’re sharing your stories with policymakers, media and the public-at-large.
