Times are tough. Today's difficult economy presents pressures and challenges not seen in this country for a generation.

We understand that you have to work harder to win each job, and that competition is tougher than ever. We realize that despite your efforts, sometimes the work just doesn't come. We know that each month, it gets harder and harder to pay the bills.

That's why we've established this website. Together, all partners in this effort have created and gathered the tools, technology and resources you need to help your business survive these times and come out better on the other side. The heart of US manufacturing still beats strong. Together we can restore this country's manufacturing industry to what it once was, to what it deserves to be -- the cornerstone of innovation and progress for the global economy.

We will be continuously adding to this toolkit, so please check back often!
