At SKF, we believe in the longterm
development of the U.S.
industrial economy. The reindustrialization
is supported by a strong
university-based research network,
a competitive workforce and energy
supply from domestic energy resources.
However, there are still challenges,
particularly regarding the availability
of skilled labor. Business, education
and governments have a responsibility
to work together to ensure this is not
the bottleneck in U.S. industrial development. I am particularly pleased with and support the work the National Association of Manufacturers is doing in this area.
