Board members from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) traveled to the White House today to meet with President Trump to discuss how regulations are possibly harming small manufacturers and their job-creation ability. Patricia Miller, CEO and president of Matrix 4, Inc., Joseph Eddy, president of Eagle Manufacturing Company and Carolina Color Corporation chairman and CEO Matt Barr were part of the group going to the White House.
According to NAM, the organization is optimistic about the future eve though it knows many hurdles must be overcome when it comes to regulatory reform, infrastructure investment, workforce development and comprehensive tax reform.
The meeting comes as the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) released its first Manufacturers' Outlook Survey since Trump took office, showing more than 93 percent of manufacturers have a positive economic outlook. This is the highest in the survey's 20-year history, up from 56.6 percent one year ago and 77.8 percent in December 2016.
