CLAAS of America Inc. is just one of several companies from across the country joining forces with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers in support of the “I Make America” campaign. This effort seeks to encourage elected officials to support legislation that could help protect and create jobs in the U.S. manufacturing industry.

This movement is gaining momentum and followers, encouraging companies to allow their workers to talk about the role their manufacturing jobs play in their community through video stories. These personal experiences are gathered on the “I Make America” website and each provides a glimpse into local manufacturing companies, the jobs they create and the local importance of passing a variety of legislation to help these companies continue to prosper and keep America globally competitive.
