Obama names Youngstown in Raleigh, N.C., speech



Published: Wed, January 15, 2014 @ 8:14 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — In a speech today in Raleigh, N.C., naming that city as a manufacturing hub, President Barack Obama mentioned the “great work” being done at Youngstown’s America Makes — the first manufacturing innovation institute created during his administration.

“So a little over a year ago, we launched America’s first manufacturing innovation institute in Youngstown, Ohio,” Obama said. “And what it was is a partnership; it includes companies and colleges. They came up with a joint plan. They were focusing on developing 3-D printing technology and training workers with the skills required to master that technology.”

Obama praised the Youngstown location — previously known as the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute — in his Feb. 12, 2013, State of the Union address.

The $70 million Youngstown facility uses 3-D software that draws up a detailed blueprint, which is then transmitted to a specialized machine that uses plastics, metals or resins to print a product layer-by-layer, cutting out costly material and labor in the process.

A sincere Thank You to the greatest President.

Youngstown is emerging as a new entity with positive and real prospects, not only for our future as a community, but also as a foundation from which other communities may then steer their ship into new opportunities and achievements.

President Obama has not forgotten us.

President Obama has taken The City of Youngstown to his side and is encouraging, fostering, and stimulating ideas and entrepreneurship in our community, our city, unlike ANY President before him.

Think of it: A New Youngstown.

We the people of The Greatest City in The United States of America, The City of Youngstown, have the people with the intelligence and the people with the muscle to create, innovate, and birth forth a new age of industry and partnership.

The President of the United States believes so.

I believe so.

And the Honest, Hardworking, Dedicated residents of Youngstown Ohio know so.

Thank you President Obama. MY President.

Askme-
Please refrain from commenting on such articles so late at night. Without proper sleep, your brain will not work correctly. If you think the Prez gives a crap about Youngstown, you are wrong. Still, the Dems continue to love this guy....scandal after scandal. Big deal...he mentioned Youngstown in a speech and frankly, this is only the 2nd time I have ever heard of this project. If Youngstown is going to depend on the Prez to give shameless plugs to its "Innovative companies", then you, my friend are as naïve as an infant. We need to give this place a shoutout each and every chance we get. Word travels fast and that is the best P.R. we could get.
