CMTA shows Legislature importance of CA MFG

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on June 11, 2018

You might recall from CMTA's earlier celebration and magazine feature that 2018 is the Centennial Anniversary year for CMTA.  In 1918, five founding companies started the Association (then called the California Manufacturers Association) because they were aware of the huge and growing role they played in the regional economy. 100 years later the same things drive our association and the sector itself - innovation, job creation and competitiveness.

Last week CMTA gained attention both in the Capitol and through twitter with a California manufacturing display in front of the Governor's office to help us celebrate our Centennial year and to launch our efforts for this year's Oct. 5 Manufacturing Day.  Assemblyman Mike Gipson also passed a unanimous Resolution on the Floor commemorating the Oct 5th Manufacturing Day and this week Senator Josh Newman will present his Resolution for CMTA's Centennial Anniversary year. The Capitol exhibit emphasized every reason why our State leaders should work to attract more manufacturing. With only 4.5 percent of last year's U.S. manufacturing investment and a manufacturing sector that continues to lag the national renaissance in job growth, California must enact policies that make our state more competitive for retention and attraction of manufacturing growth.

Make sure you show your support for California manufacturing by using this preformatted tweet
