MMA Co-Hosts Event Featuring Vice President Pence & Discussion of USMCA Impact on Manufacturing

The Michigan Manufacturers Association (MMA) was proud to co-host a statewide event with Michigan business leaders, and special guest Vice President Mike Pence, for a discussion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) today, Wednesday, 4/24/19, at Motor City Solutions in Taylor.

“We are pleased and honored to have Vice President Pence come to the great state of Michigan,” said Chuck Hadden, MMA president & CEO. “We are strong supporters of the USMCA, because Canada and Mexico purchase more than $34 billion in manufactured goods from Michigan — that’s more than the rest of the world combined.”

The Vice President joined MMA, the Motor Equipment Manufacturers Association, the Original Equipment Suppliers Association and others following his tour of the Ford Motor Company’s Dearborn facility.

“The USMCA will impact more than 2 million American manufacturing jobs that depend on exports to Canada & Mexico. It’s vital because the USMCA will finally give workers the level playing field that we need to compete & win on a global stage,” said Vice President Pence. “Automakers, their suppliers, their dealerships, and the local businesses that support them employ more than 7.25 million Americans every year – more than any other manufacturing sector in our country. And the USMCA is a win for the auto industry!”

Panelists participating in the standing-room only discussion included:

  • Sandy Baruah, President & CEO, Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce (Moderator)
  • Jim Kamsickas, President & CEO, Dana Inc.
  • Joe Anderson, Chairman & CEO, TAG Holdings, LLC.
  • Don Walker, CEO, Magna International
  • Lisa Drake, Vice President, Global Powertrain & Purchasing, Ford Motor Company
  • Everett Eissenstat, Vice President, Global Public Policy, General Motors
  • Scott Thiele, Head of NAFTA Purchasing & Supply Chain, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

"Michigan is truly the comeback state. We are leading the nation in manufacturing job growth, having created 183,000 manufacturing jobs since January 2010,” Hadden said. “We share the Trump Administration’s goal of promoting free and fair trade, while protecting national security.”
