Ohioans know how important manufacturing is to our economy. Since December 2009, the manufacturing sector has added more than 600,000 jobs to the U.S. economy, but too many communities are still struggling to get back on their feet.

Sen. Brown has worked to create manufacturing partnerships across Ohio that spur innovation and create good-paying, high skill jobs. Sen. Brown has also fought to protect Ohio’s manufacturers from unfair trade practices. Ohio’s workers can compete with anyone in the world, but only if there’s a level playing field. Sen. Brown will continue to champion the cause of domestic manufacturing and its workers.
