Today NFIB member Bob Prybutok , President & CEO at Polymer Technologies Inc., spoke on a panel about the future of manufacturing. The event titled, “The Future of Manufacturing in Delaware: How the current regulatory environment impacts its sustainability and growth with U.S. Senator Chris Coons” was hosted by Delaware Chamber of Commerce and the Delaware Manufacturing Association. We appreciate the valuable input and comments Bob offered today during the panel discussion.

Generally, panel members said there are four key topics that need to be addressed to improve manufacturing in “The First State”; 1.) Regulations and utilization of land 2.) Education and the skills of the workforce 3.) Cost of utilities, especially electricity 4.) Right to Work laws.

Sen. Coons spoke and participated in a Q&A session with attendees. He offered support for the manufacturing community saying that he enjoys trying to find a path forward for manufacturing and that manufacturing isn’t a partisan issue.
