With growing domestic energy production, the American Midwest is resurgent. CEA Midwest gives a voice to midwest manufacturers and other job creators benefitting from new opportunities afforded by energy production.

Manufacturers like steel producers and their labor counterparts are growing again, in response to new energy production in states like Ohio and as far away as Texas. As this growth continues, new projects and industries like pipeline construction and infrastructure will benefit, as will energy consumers and job seekers. New renewable energy infrastructure is planned, and questions about additional energy exploration in states such as Michigan will continue.

CEA provides a much-needed voice in support of this newfound growth, expansion and reinvigoration in the region.
