Kondex Reaches I Make America Gold Level for Actively Voicing Pro-Manufacturing Message.

Kondex is the latest AEM member to achieve elite gold-level status in the I Make America campaign.  The gold level recognizes the company's dedicated, extensive and continuing efforts to encourage grassroots momentum urging Congress to pass job-creating manufacturing policies that help AEM members and the entire equipment industry prosper.

I Make America gold-level supporters such as Kondex Corporation are an important group that have achieved participation benchmarks that mark them as industry leaders, including significant employee involvement; outreach to local, state and/or federal legislators; promoting campaign sign-ups at trade shows and with allied trade associations; and production of A Day in American Life video telling the story of how their company, employees and communities "make America."

The AEM-led I Make America national grassroots campaign spotlights the importance of manufacturing to the national economy and the need for pro-manufacturing legislative policies to boost American jobs and keep the United States competitive in the global economy.  The campaign has nearly 21,000 supporters.  Issues include the need for adequate and sustained infrastructure investment and export-friendly policies.
