Mallinckrodt, whose operational headquarters are in St. Louis, is a global business consisting of multiple wholly owned subsidiaries that develop, manufacture, market and distribute specialty pharmaceutical products and therapies.

Founded in 1895, the NAM is the largest industrial trade association in the United States with more than 14,000 members and is the nation’s most influential advocate for manufacturing. The NAM’s membership includes some of the world’s most iconic brands and many of the small manufacturers that power the U.S. economy.
Nearly 90 percent of the NAM’s members are small and medium-sized businesses.
The organization has become a “one-stop shop” for manufacturers, telling the story of manufacturers and equipping manufacturers with invaluable resources through our news and insights channels and partnerships with the Manufacturing Leadership Council and Manufacturing Institute.
The NAM and its members are at the forefront of every important policy debate for manufacturers and have led the nation’s response to COVID-19. The NAM has worked with member companies to mobilize personal protective equipment and other key resources. Manufacturers have come to the aid of the nation and continue operating safely to find cures and treatments, keeping us connected and supply food and other essential products. Executives on the NAM Board, which comprises leaders representing companies of all sizes in every industrial sector, are the driving force behind the NAM’s efforts.
“I am honored to be a part of the NAM Board and continue to advocate for policies that will ensure our continued advancement, growth, and success as manufacturers,” said Trudeau. “I am grateful for the opportunity to educate policymakers about how their policies affect the more than 12 million men and women employed in manufacturing. I look forward to joining with my colleagues to share stories and viewpoints of all manufacturers who are keeping our promise to rise up and deliver as manufacturing leads our country out of this pandemic.”
