Huron Automatic Screw Company Supports MEMA’s Efforts in Washington D.C.

Huron Automatic Screw Company supports the motor vehicle supplier industry’s efforts to create a safer, more sustainable, and more profitable industry. Legislation in Washington D.C. moves quite slowly and often ends in a paralyzed state due to opposing sides refusing to negotiate, or coming to a compromise that ultimately effects no real change. Being a direct provider of over 734,000 jobs, the motor vehicle supplier industry is an important part of this country. Huron Automatic Screw Company supports MEMA’s (Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association) efforts to educate congress members on how we can create an even better auto industry.

The Importance of Education

As a valued member of MEMA and the HDMA (Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association), Huron Automatic Screw Company believes it is important to be involved with government regulation. When dealing with an industry as large and complex as the auto supplier industry, things must be heavily regulated to ensure the safety, equality, and efficiency of the industry. However, many congress members are uneducated in regards to the ins and outs of the auto industry. This is where MEMA and the HDMA attempt to fill the knowledge gap. MEMA operates one of the largest websites in the industry and uses it as a platform to inform members and non-members of current events involving the industry. Anyone interested is able to take advantage of the website and browse the various articles dealing with industry events, innovations, news, and legislative changes. Aside from that the MEMA government affairs office in Washington D.C. monitors state and federal legislation and regulation impacting the industry. MEMA works closely with congress members attempting to educate them on the importance of the industry and its pivotal role in the top bipartisan priority – creating jobs.

What is Currently Happening in Auto-Industry Related Government?

Over the past few years, there has been a significant push in this country toward sustainable and healthy practices in every industry. MEMA has been an active participant in making sure that the auto-industry is moving in this direction as well. Recently, MEMA worked with California state government to make sure that auto suppliers and manufacturers are using safe chemicals, and labeling any that may be harmful. This was part of a push to reform California’s Proposition 65, and it was successful. It is efforts like this that Huron Automatic Screw Company finds it important to support. As an active member of the auto-part manufacturing industry, Huron Automatic Screw Company wants to see the enforcing of safe and healthy practices, the continuing growth of jobs, and furthering efficiency in the industry.

The Heavy-Duty Manufacturing Industry Posts Record Sales in June

The Heavy-Duty Manufacturing Industry Posts Record Sales in June

Record sales in the heavy-duty trucking industry translate into sustain growth and success for automotive manufacturing companies and suppliers in 2015.

Economic forecasts for the heavy-duty trucking manufacturing industry are strong right now thanks to record sales this June. According to the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), U.S. sales of heavy-duty trucks reached the third-highest level in history in June, 2015. Sales are attributed to large fleet orders placed back in the fall and winter of 2014 that are now being delivered. The June sales record continues a growth phase within the industry and experts believe the trend will continue into the future.

Sales Soar This Summer

June’s sales volume was 18% higher than May, 2015 and was the most ever for the month of June. In all, 25,369 Class 8 trucks were sold, representing a 31% increase over last year. The last highest record for June was set back in 2006 with the sale of 25,240 Class 8 trucks. Best of all, HDMA projects that sales will continue and will sustain a positive outlook for the heavy-duty trucking industry through 2015. This is great news for those in the market who are looking to continue the growth cycle that has been building in the past years and is supporting a strong return of the heavy-duty trucking manufacturing industry.

Record Sales Sustain Future Growth

This is great news for the domestic automotive manufacturing industry and the nation’s economy as a whole.   Record sales translate into additional manufacturing jobs and employment opportunities which in turn boosts the economy and sustains economic growth throughout the country.
