NAM and Bosch Award Rep. Fred Upton for Supporting Manufacturing

Washington, D.C., Oct. 3, 2016 – Today, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) presented Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI-6) the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence at an event hosted by Robert Bosch LLC, in St. Joseph, Michigan.

“Manufacturers need leaders in Washington who are going to fight for us. Today, we honor a member who does more than talk the talk. His votes for pro-manufacturing and pro-growth policies demonstrate he cares about manufacturing’s future. On behalf of Bosch and manufacturers across this country, I am proud to present this award to Rep. Upton,” said Scott Winchip, regional president of Chassis Systems Control with Robert Bosch LLC.

"Southwest Michigan is home to a thriving manufacturing sector. And these manufacturers, like Bosch, create the good paying local jobs that keep our economy moving forward. The National Association of Manufacturers fights hard for our local folks and I want to thank them for their efforts,” said Rep. Upton. “I also appreciate their support for our bipartisan 21st Century Cures initiative as it will help America compete better globally. I'm proud to receive this award and will continue to fight for common-sense, bipartisan solutions that support our local manufacturers."

“Manufacturing changes lives for the better—through the jobs we create and the products we make. It is about improving the human condition, one innovation at a time,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Rep. Upton helps make our success possible by standing with manufacturers when it matters and casting the right votes.

“Manufacturers employ over 12 million men and women in the U.S. who make everything from lifesaving medicines to the most cutting edge technology. The strength of manufacturing in America is responsible for the success of America in the world. When manufacturing succeeds, America succeeds, and Rep. Upton’s consistent support for manufacturing means he is supporting a better future for all Americans.”

Key Votes included in the Voting Record are selected by small, medium and large manufacturing executives who serve on the NAM’s Key Vote Advisory Committee. Additional information on the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence can be found here.
