Our Mission

The Texas Association of Manufacturers promotes and protects a pro-growth business environment that ensures a strong manufacturing sector and a competitive Texas.


Today’s manufacturing sector brings new technologies and consumer goods to the market and drives the Texas economy forward. Manufacturers in Texas account for more than 13.3 percent of the total output in the state – more than $226 billion in 2017 – and manufacturers employ more than 869,600 Texans in jobs that pay an average compensation of more than $82,540 a year.

More than 600 small and large companies from all across the state are members of the Texas Association of Manufacturers (TAM). And, TAM gives a voice to those businesses at the State house and at our nation’s Capital.
