E3: Revitalizing American Manufacturing

E3: Revitalizing American Manufacturing


[music]
Narrator: MANUFACTURING PROVIDES STRONG ECONOMIES FOR COMMUNITIES AND STABLE JOBS FOR HARD WORKING
AMERICANS. COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE NOW STRENGTHENING
THEIR LOCAL MANUFACTURING BASE AND CREATING NEW JOBS WITH THE HELP OF AN INNOVATIVE INITIATIVE
– ECONOMY, ENERGY, AND ENVIRONMENT, OR E3. Matt Howard, Environmental Sustainability
Director, City of Milwaukee: One of the reasons that we really like the E3 program is because
we see it as a tool to redevelop our city. Narrator: E3 IS A FRAMEWORK THROUGH WHICH
COMMUNITIES CONNECT LOCAL MANUFACTURERS WITH THE BEST TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE THROUGH
FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL RESOURCES. EACH COMMUNITY IS SUPPORTED BY A COALITION OF FEDERAL
AGENCIES THAT HAVE JOINED FORCES TO FORM E3. EACH LOCAL E3 TEAM WORKS DIRECTLY WITH MANUFACTURERS
TO HELP THEM TUNE-UP THEIR FACTORIES AND IMPLEMENT COST-CUTTING, WASTE-REDUCING MEASURES.
THE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE. THE LESS MONEY MANUFACTURERS SPEND ON WASTE, THE MORE MONEY THEY HAVE TO
SPEND ON HIRING NEW EMPLOYEES, ADOPTING NEW INNOVATIONS AND EXPANDING INTO NEW MARKETS.
E3 IS FLEXIBLE AND CAN WORK IN ANY COMMUNITY. IT CAN HELP EACH COMMUNITY MEET ITS OWN UNIQUE
PRIORITIES. TRAINING WORKERS. REDUCING ENERGY USE. SAVING WATER. CONSERVING RAW MATERIALS.
PREVENTING POLLUTION. Marshall Atkinson, Chief Operating Officer,
Visual Impressions: By reducing our operational costs, E3 allows us to become a better and
stronger company. ONE THING IS CLEAR, FOR A MANUFACTURER TO
COMPETE IN TODAY’S GLOBAL MARKETPLACE; IT NEEDS TO BE SMARTER, MORE INNOVATIVE, AND
SUSTAINABLE. E3 CAN SHOW MANUFACTURERS THE WAY TOWARD A MORE PROFITABLE FUTURE.
