As I continue to visit with management teams of manufacturing companies across Tennessee, I continue to be impressed by the diversity of products, similarity of operational issues, and the creative motivation of industry to keep their bottom line healthy and growing.  These visits help the Tennessee Manufacturers Association and Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry continue to be an accurate and representative voice of business, especially working to affect the regulatory environment in a way that is conducive to industry success.  I’m appreciative of the time the management team from Kellogg’s in Memphis took to share their concerns and opportunities with me.
