Nearly five years after he made Cedar Rapids his first stop on his campaign to transform America, President Obama will return to visit a factory to talk about his vision of a new era of “Made in America” manufacturing.
The president, who will deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress tonight, will make a midday visit to Cedar Rapids Wednesday to tour Conveyor Engineering & Manufacturing, 1345 76th Ave SW.
It will be his first visit to Cedar Rapids since his town hall on energy in July 2008.
Obama is expected to speak to about 400 people on the first pillar of his blueprint — his vision for a “new era of American manufacturing with more great jobs and more products made in the USA,” according to senior administration officials who briefed reporters on the president’s three-day, five-state tour after the State of the Union speech.
