The past six weeks have been an exciting time to cover the manufacturing industry. Since Manufacturing Dive’s launch as a publication in November, our team has covered a variety of issues across the industry, from unionization in local factories to President Joe Biden’s visit to an upcoming Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company site in Arizona.
Throughout our coverage, one issue has been a dominant source of buzzy news — the push for domestic electric vehicle manufacturing.
We’ve followed automakers like GM and Volkswagen as they build out their electric vehicle portfolios and scout for raw material sources and plant locations. And we’ve covered the spate of factory announcements for the production of electric vehicle batteries, an integral part of the EV market that is becoming increasingly competitive.
As we wrap up 2023, Manufacturing Dive has rounded up some of our top news stories of the year, highlighting some of the biggest facility announcements and developments in the world of manufacturing.
