    Kentucky Association of Manufacturers (KAM) members and manufacturers from across the Commonwealth have requested KAM take the lead in facilitating robust and focused discussion with key decision makers to ensure appropriate and timely action is taken to continue Kentucky’s strong performance of providing reliable and affordable energy now and into the future.

    KAM’s areas of focus at this time are reliable, affordable energy and workforce development. KAM encourages partnerships with like-minded organizations to strengthen our approach and impact with decision makers – ultimately driving outcomes that support a vibrant and growing manufacturing sector and a manufacturing-friendly environment in Kentucky.
