Renaissance in American Manufacturing

”I’m calling for all of us to come together – private sector industry, universities, and the government – to spark a renaissance in American manufacturing and help our manufacturers develop the cutting-edge tools they need to compete with anyone in the world. With these key investments, we can ensure that the United States remains a nation that ‘invents it here and manufactures it here’ and creates high-quality, good paying jobs for American workers.” President Barack Obama.

The U.S. Advanced Manufacturing Partnership was announced by the President during a June visit to the National Robotics Engineering Center at Carnegie Mellon University

The Growth of Wind Power

It was reported this week at the conference of the American Wind Energy Association that the U.S. goal of wind supplying 20% of the country’s energy needs by 2030 is running ahead of projections. Along with this good news comes the fact that more jobs are being created, which leads to greater activity in firms such as ours.

Clients are looking for talent in a very competitive market. The candidates with the skills, experience and connections the industry expects are in demand, not just in the United States, but globally as well.

Renewable Energy – where are the jobs?

 “Clean energy continues to fuel the plans of many cities, states, nations, investors, and companies as they look for the next wave of innovation and growth”, an article in Globe-Net told us last October.

Since then, the Obama administration has launched Startup America Partnership, an initiative for working closely with the White House in marshaling private sector resources for the acceleration of community-based entrepreneurship programs.

For the Renewable Energy sector the benefits are not yet clear, but any time job creation programs are launched, our industry will sooner or later feel a positive impact.
