    MANAGING EDITOR

    At an event geared to tomorrows workforce, the president ofa local manufacturing firm presented the case for blue collarcareers.

    As a country, you can see that manufacturing is going tobecome more important down the road, Christopher Barnard,president and chief executive officer of Wacker NeusonCorporation, said during opening comments at theManufacturing and Career Expo at Davians in MenomoneeFalls Oct. 9. The company is a leading manufacturing of lightand compact equipment. Its American headquarters are locat-ed in Menomonee Falls.

    The Manufacturing and Career Expo which is organizedby the Menomonee Falls, Germantown and Sussex chambers ofcommerce featured booths from more than 20 area manufac-turing firms. Students from the Menomonee Falls, Germantownand Hamilton school districts attended during sessions on Oct.10. There was also time set aside for the public at large to attendthe event.

    During his opening comments, Barnard said that every $1 inmanufacturing produces a mulitplier of $1.35. Also according todata cited by Barnard:

    If manufacturing in the United States was a country, itwould be the 10th largest country in the world. The manufactur-ing sector in the United States is slightly smaller than Russia but

    larger than Spain, India, Canada and 60 percent the size of

    The following information was provided bythe Germantown School District.

    The Germantown High School "5thAnnual Powder Puff School Sponsored CharityEvent" was held Oct. 2 at Datka Stadium. Insemi-final action, the juniors beat the sopho-mores 30-12 and the freshmen upset the sen-iors 20-0.

    Germany;In the United States, the average value

    added per worker in manufacturing is$118,419. In China, it is $13,266.

    The value added per U.S. manufacturingworker is almost 10 times the value of China,Barnard said.

    Barnard said manufacturing should bethe engine for the future and it should be anarea in which both schools and public policyfocus for such a long period of time.Unfortunately, we dont see that happening.

    According to Barnard, the United Stateshas gone from being an energy importertoward being an energy exporter. By 2020,the United States will be energy independent,he said.

    Seven years ago, you would never, everhave believed that was going to happen, he

    said.The implication of that will be an increasedemphasis on jobs in the manufacturing sector,as there will be 3.3 million new jobs being cre-ated due to energy independence. Also, $468billion will be added to the gross domesticproduct and $258 billion will be added to theannual industrial output.

    The bottom line is we have to continue to

    focus in manufacturing as our future. In thenext five to 10 years, its going to be very clearthat the United States is going to be the pre-eminent manufacturer in the world, Barnardsaid.

    He said the single biggest challenge is

    finding the people to work in the manufactur-ing sector and explained that businesses in themanufacturing sector will have to continue tochange and plan for the jobs of tomorrow.

    If we do that properly, then people willlook at manufacturing not as a plant, not as anold job classification, not as whether youreunion or non-union, as a machinist or anassembler theyll be looking at manufactur-ing as the anchor on which this country isgoing to grow for the next 10 to 15 years,Barnard said. I really mean that because t hatreally is our future.

    Harvey Neu of Neus Building Center

    added that a strong manufacturing communi-ty makes for a strong community strongschools, strong housing market, strong every-thing.

    Neu added that he is amazed what isproduced in the area which is created by thelocal workforce and used globally.

    We want that workforce to continue togrow and support these manufacturers, Neusaid.
