SkyWater President and CEO Thomas Sonderman congratulates Congress for taking the bold step necessary to regain U.S. manufacturing leadership
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – July 28, 2022 – SkyWater Technology (NASDAQ: SKYT), the trusted technology realization partner, today thanked Congress for passing the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022. The landmark legislation puts the U.S. on more equal footing with Europe and Asia in rebuilding a deteriorating domestic manufacturing environment that saw America’s global share of semiconductor production drop from over 30% to less than 12%.
“The bold, historic votes taken in the Senate and House today will be remembered for reigniting the private investments and public-private partnerships to solidify America’s leadership in research and development while reversing the trend of our shrinking, domestic manufacturing production,” said Thomas Sonderman, president & CEO of SkyWater Technology. “Great nations build things and the members of Congress representing Minnesota, Florida and Indiana joined colleagues from around the U.S. in recognizing that America needs to do more to compete in a global economy to bolster our national security and advance the foundational technologies upon which American innovators rely.”
