Tennessee manufacturing plays a key role in the state’s economic success. Governor Bill Haslam issued a proclamation declaring October 4, 2013 as the kick-off day for a season of support celebrating the manufacturing community. Manufacturing is a top driver of Tennessee’s economy providing more than $41 billion in total economic output and employing more than 300,000 workers.
The Tennessee Manufacturers Association is a part of the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry, serving as the state’s leading voice on manufacturing.
The Chamber promotes a pro business climate and a competitive workforce, advocating for businesses on Capitol Hill.
