The Manufacturing 21 Coalition launched an open invitation to Oregon manufacturers at the Summit. This public-private partnership is an active and authentic voice to advocate for Oregon and Southwest Washington’s manufacturing economy. The Coalition exists to:
- Ensure manufacturing remains a strong contributor to our region’s economy and to the health of our communities;
- Educate community leaders about the role manufacturing plays in the region and provide a clear voice concerning the needs of the industry;
- Foster the seamless delivery of workforce development services through public agencies and community-based private organizations; and
- Expand the applied research and development capacity of our universities to meet the region’s manufacturing needs by advocating for investments in state-of-the-art technology.
