Superior Featured in California Economic Summit Video

california economic summitAs California Forward’s Cheryl Getuiza explains: “The reports of manufacturing's demise in California are probably exaggerated. In Southern California, the largest manufacturing region in the country, there are still 360,000 workers in the industry. The problem for manufacturers is that number of skilled workers is not big enough.”

Superior Thread Rolling is featured in a California Economic Summit video "A Missing Ingredient in California's Manufacturing Revival” as a prime example of this ongoing issue. In the video, Superior president Tom Mundy explains the challenges of doing business in today’s economic climate, and the difficulties in finding and retaining qualified employees in California. Tom also points out the demise of high school career technical education courses in recent years, and calls for a restoration of this vital education/economic link for Southern California’s manufacturing future. Cheryl Getuiza confirms, “investment in education is an investment in manufacturing…in the biggest manufacturing state in the country.”
