Assembly Technology Expo, the world's largest "all assembly" trade event, will feature a keynote address by actor John Ratzenberger, producer and host of the Travel Channel's "John Ratzenberger's Made in America" series, which honors the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of American manufacturing. Ratzenberger will share insights that he has gained visiting American factories and working alongside the men and women who produce many of America's best-loved products, including: Harley Davidson motorcycles; Chevy Corvettes; Airstream trailers; John Deere tractors; Sikorsky helicopters; Sturm Ruger rifles; Craftsman tools; Zippo lighters; NCR cash registers; and Slinky toys. "We can't imagine a more fitting way to mark ATExpo's 25th year of industry leadership than a tribute to the greatness and inventive spirit of American manufacturers," stated Kelvin Marsden-Kish, vice president of the Assembly family of events, produced by Reed Exhibitions. "Mr. Ratzenberger is clearly passionate about great American products and respects the skill and dedication of the men and women who create them. He has become a highly effective advocate of American ingenuity at work, and of manufacturers who invest in the effort to maintain a competitive edge here in the United States."
