Overheard – Discrete manufacturing

“There are far too many valuable resources, too much valuable capital and especially too much human skill and know-how embedded in America’s manufacturing sector to allow it to go to waste.”

Vice President Biden, speaking in Perrysburg, Ohio

Tuesday, June 23rd, Vice President Biden and the Middle Class Task Force went to Perrysburg, Ohio to promote manufacturing.  The Vice President hosted a discussion on the state of manufacturing.  From what I could gather reading through the local news feeds,”retooling” and “renewable energy” were the buzzwords-of-the-day.  If you’re a discrete manufacturer for automobile parts, for instance, you might want to picture yourself making parts for wind turbines or solar panels instead.
