All across Rhode Island there are exciting stories about the rebirth of manufacturing.  Many need to realize how industry has transformed over the years and understand the significance of growing and maintaining a strong manufacturing base.  We are a critical component of our state’s economic recovery.

Together we will continue the transformation.
