Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, along with leaders from Colorado’s manufacturing industry, recently announced the launch of the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance (CAMA). The alliance comprises members of the manufacturing industry, as well as leaders in government and education, who will work to enhance the global competitiveness of advanced manufacturing in Colorado and create jobs across the state.

“The Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance is a perfect example of the collaboration needed to create new jobs and more capital investment in our state,” Hickenlooper said. “Advanced manufacturing is uniquely positioned to lead our state’s recovery because it cuts across many of Colorado’s key industries. The alliance will help address the business needs of Colorado’s manufacturers today and pave the way for the innovators and manufacturers of the future.”

The idea for CAMA reportedly grew out of the state’s Bottom-Up economic development initiative, which gathered input from over 5,000 people to help create the Colorado Blueprint. Key industry and regional development programs expanded from this process, calling for collaborative asset-based economic development efforts to advance the key industries in every region. As part of this process, advanced manufacturing stakeholders came together to discuss opportunities to promote the industry. They agreed to create CAMA, ensuring industry engagement and continued collaboration.
