Washington, D.C., April 24, 2017 – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has announced that Mike Gromacki, president of Dixie Chemical Company, has been named to the NAM Board of Directors. As president of Dixie, specialty chemical manufacturers, Gromacki will join the NAM Board to advance a manufacturing policy agenda that promotes growth and prosperity for all Americans.
Founded in 1895 and guided by its Board of Directors, NAM is the largest industrial trade association in the United States. With more than 14,000 members, it is the nation’s most influential advocate for manufacturing. The NAM’s membership includes some of the world’s most iconic brands, and many of the small manufacturers that power the U.S. economy. Ninety percent of members are small and medium-sized businesses.
The NAM is at the forefront of every important policy debate for manufacturers. Executives on the NAM Board, which is comprised of leaders representing companies of all sizes in every industrial sector, are the driving force behind the NAM’s advocacy efforts.
“I am proud of the opportunity to contribute to the critical work the NAM is doing to refocus and unleash the potential of the U.S. manufacturing base through its leadership in workforce development, infrastructure, trade policy and regulatory and tax reform,” said Gromacki.
“Mike is a true leader in our industry, and he brings valuable insights on regulatory innovation and sustainable infrastructure to the NAM Board of Directors,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Mike knows what it takes to succeed in a changing global economy and the kinds of solutions we need to see from our elected leaders. With his voice and leadership, the NAM will be an even more effective advocate for our more than 14,000 members and for the industry that is the backbone of our country.”
