This Week On The Importance Of American Manufacturing:

Meet Samuel Wurzelbacher, also known as ‘Joe the Plumber.’ He is an Ohio native who is well known for the national attention he received during the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election. More importantly Joe is a U.S. Air Force Veteran who passionately supports the health and well-being of his fellow Veterans as VP of the non-profit program entitled Alaska`s Healing Hearts.

Q: Please tell us a little about yourself. 

A: I lead a very active life most of it Outdoors. Hunting, Fishing, Chopping Wood, playing or coaching sports. To feel good about myself, I have to accomplish something each day, from my wife’s honey-do list, to helping small businesses be successful here in America. 

Q: Why is American manufacturing important to you?

A: I like seeing my neighbors happy and people around me succeed. For our country to remain strong, I believe American Manufacturing is key to our success.

Q. Where did your passion for American manufacturing begin?

A: My Passion for American Manufacturing comes from being a die-hard patriot. I love buying “American Made” it makes me feel proud! I go out of my way, and sometimes go without to support American Made. American Manufacturing is what will keep America great!

Q: In what ways have you expressed that passion throughout your life?

A: As I stated before, I will go out of my way to buy American Made. I will spend the extra money. I speak at businesses, and write article about how our tax system is really hurting American Manufacturing/Small Business. I further express how both parties really aren’t working on our behalf and encourage them to step up and voice their concerns and elect people that will work for us and in turn work toward a better system for American manufacturing and small business.

Q: What is your favorite quote?

A: Spread my work ethic, not my wealth!

The Importance of American Manufacturing – Senator Sherrod Brown (OH)

By: Logan Beam

In this section, I will be interviewing American citizens about the importance of American Manufacturing. The truth is, we are all citizens before we are businessmen, celebrities, athletes, servicemen, or politicians. This segment is a place where all types of American citizens can come together to share ideas, insights, and offer ways to benefit our economy. Notice I said our economy. There are many ways Americans can come together and support a great cause. I hope this is one of them.

This week`s guest is Senator Sherrod Brown (OH).

Senator Sherrod Brown

Senator Sherrod Brown (OH)

Q. Please tell us a little about yourself.

A. I’m the senior U.S. Senator representing my home state of Ohio. I grew up in Mansfield but now live in Avon with my wife, Connie. We have three daughters, a son, a daughter-in-law, and a grandson.

Q. Why is American Manufacturing important to you?

A. Manufacturing is critical to our nation’s middle class and to creating good-paying jobs that help us out-compete and out-innovate the rest of the world. Unlike wealth created by the click of a computer mouse, wealth created by expanded production in manufacturing requires an expanded workforce. Manufacturing jobs pay 20 percent more on average than service jobs. And it is no secret that Ohio’s manufacturing jobs have strong multiplier effects — supporting jobs in other sectors of our economy. Manufacturing also accounts for 70 percent of our research and development, more than 90 percent of patents issued, more than 90 percent of Ohio’s exports, and is critical to our national security and our energy security.

Q. Where did your passion for USA manufacturing begin?

A. Growing up in Mansfield, so many families were able to buy new cars, take family vacations, and send their children to college—all because of that paycheck they earned working in manufacturing. Our country’s middle class was built on the success of manufacturing and I’m working to ensure that the next generation of manufacturing jobs is able to support Ohio’s families.

Q. How have you expressed that passion throughout your life?

A. Throughout my time in office, I’ve been committed to putting American manufacturing — and Ohio workers — first. As a nation, we have been without a focused strategy on maintaining a strong manufacturing base and growing this sector. To address this deficiency, I have been calling for a National Manufacturing Strategy to propel the public and private sectors towards a renewed focus on manufacturing job growth. That’s why I worked with U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) to introduce the National Manufacturing Strategy Act, legislation aimed at bolstering the competitiveness of the American manufacturing industry. By requiring the development of a national manufacturing strategy, the bill would boost traditional and high-tech manufacturing, spur American job growth, and strengthen the middle class.

I have also been working with my colleagues to pass the Bring Jobs Home Act, which ends tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas and cuts taxes for businesses to bring jobs back to the United States. Companies bringing jobs home would still be able to claim the current moving expense deduction when bringing jobs home, and would also receive a tax credit equal to 20 percent of the cost associated with bringing jobs and business activity back to the United States.

Q. What is your favorite quote?

A. I often think about the words of a Mississippi civil rights leader who said, “Don’t tell me what you believe. Show me what you do and I’ll tell you what you believe.”

I am very humbled to have had Senator Brown on our segment this week. I would like to thank him for taking the time to share his thoughts on The Importance of American Manufacturing. I hope you all enjoyed this segment and that you too, will share The Importance of American Manufacturing with someone you know.

Have an All American Day!

The Importance of American Manufacturing – K`NEX CEO Michael Araten

In this section, I will be interviewing American citizens about the importance of American Manufacturing. The truth is, we are all citizens before we are businessmen, celebrities, athletes, servicemen, or politicians. This segment is a place where all types of American citizens can come together to share ideas, insights, and offer ways to benefit our economy. Notice I said our economy. There are many ways Americans can come together and support a great cause. I hope this is one of them.

Our first guest is K`NEX CEO Michael Araten. Michael has contributed to many American jobs and the memories of many childhoods with the K`NEX toy brand.

K`NEX CEO Michael Araten

Questions:

  1. Please tell us a little about yourself. I am the President and CEO of K’NEX Brands (the toy manufacturing, marketing, design and distribution company) www.knex.com  and The Rodon Group (a highly automated plastics injection molder with a focus on small parts used in over 100 industries, including food, beverage, consumer packaged goods, construction and toys) www.rodongroup.com .  K’NEX is distributed to over 30 countries, and over 95% of the component parts are made at The Rodon Group.  K’NEX and Rodon were recently named one of the top 100 companies of 2012 by Smart CEO Magazine.Check out this short video which gives you some great insight into our business, specifically who we are and what we do: http://youtu.be/QFOcvQHZRdQ
  2. Why is American Manufacturing important to you? We’ve learned that the more items we are able to manufacture at home, the more people we can employ. If every American were to spend just $64 a year on things Made in the USA, 200,000 new jobs would be created. Spending our dollars on Made in the USA goods enables our whole economy to get stronger and with that our whole country becomes stronger. You just have to take that extra second and look at the label. Together, we can build a better America.
  3. Where did your passion for USA manufacturing begin?Founded in 1992 K’NEX has always been committed to manufacturing in the United States—over 90% of its parts are manufactured by The Rodon Group. In business since 1956, the Rodon Group makes billions of parts each year in its 125,000 square foot eco-friendly facility and is one of the largest family-owned and operated injection molders in the United States. We’ve learned that manufacturing in America can actually be more cost effective than manufacturing overseas. Our nation was founded on an entrepreneurial spirit, we have the ability to shape our own growth by inventing and making everything we use. Continuing to shed our manufacturing base is akin to trying to run a race without running shoes – you can do it, but you are at a tremendous disadvantage.
  4.  How have you expressed that passion throughout your life? Since the Great Recession, I have been driven to do all I can to make American manufacturing as strong as possible.  It is why we are founding members of American made matters; why I speak regularly on the topic through the Philadelphia and Bucks county chambers of commerce; why I accepted the nomination to the council of economic advisors for the Philly federal reserve bank; and why we work relentlessly to make products here in the USA
  5. What is your favorite quote? “Walk tall- dream loud.”

I would like to thank Michael Araten for taking the time to share his thoughts on the importance of American Manufacturing. I hope you all enjoyed this segment and that you too, will share the importance of American manufacturing with someone you know.
