The Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) recently recognized Sen. Todd Young as a 2022 recipient of the Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award.

The award recognizes elected officials who have shown outstanding leadership on behalf of motor vehicle component suppliers. 

Young, an Indiana Republican, received the award at the Grote Industries facility in Madison, Indiana. Grote is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and marketers of vehicle lighting and safety systems.

“It is a pleasure to host Senator Young at Grote Industries,” said Dominic Grote, president and CEO of Grote Industries. “His leadership continues to make a positive impact to the industry and the state of Indiana.”  

MEMA President and CEO Bill Long presented the Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award.

“Senator Young works diligently to promote our industry,” Long commented. “He is a true champion of the motor vehicle parts sector, and we are honored to recognize his efforts with this award.”  

Young is a leading manufacturing advocate and bipartisan leader in the U.S. Senate. Young’s work carries great significance for the auto parts industry, which provides more than 907,000 direct jobs, making it the largest creator of manufacturing jobs nationwide and contributing two-thirds of the value of a new vehicle.  

“I am grateful for this recognition and the thousands of Hoosiers who work in the motor vehicle parts sector,” Young said. “In the Senate, I will continue to fight for policies like USICA that support domestic manufacturing and encourage American innovation.” 

At the instrumental Senate Finance and Commerce Committees, Young has done much to advance MEMA manufacturing and competitiveness priorities. For example, he has been a leader of efforts in 2021-2022 to pass the CHIPS Act, with its vital motor vehicle legacy chip provision for the industry to increase U.S. semiconductor chip production to alleviate stressed supply chains.  

In fact, Young was the Republican leader of the broad U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (USICA) that passed the Senate in June 2021. The bill includes the CHIPS Act, enhances supply chain resiliency and increases funding for R&D partnerships with manufacturers. Young is working hard to get a final version of this bill passed through Congress as soon as possible in 2022.  

“Senator Young is a true champion of Indiana motor vehicle parts manufacturers and their 84,000 employees,” said Long. “We are pleased to present MEMA’s 2022 Industry Champion Award to Senator Young.”

      The Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) honored U.S. Reps. Debbie Dingell and Haley Stevens as the 2022 recipients of the Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award.
      The award is a special recognition given to elected officials who have shown outstanding leadership on behalf of automotive and commercial vehicle suppliers.
      The awards ceremony was held at the MAHLE Powertrain facility in Plymouth, Michigan.
      The MAHLE Powertrain site develops advanced zero-carbon and battery electric solutions for global OEMs across all markets from automotive to marine and power generation. MAHLE Powertrain is the Engineering Services arm of MAHLE, the global Tier 1 supplier.
      “Representatives Dingell and Stevens have both worked diligently to promote the interests of our industry,” MEMA President and CEO Bill Long said. “We are lucky to have them in our circle, advocating for policies that allow our industry to prosper.”
      Their work carries great significance within the vehicle-supplier industry. Manufacturing automotive parts provides more than 907,000 direct jobs, making it the largest creator of manufacturing jobs nationwide and contributing two-thirds of the value of a new vehicle.
      As a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Dingell’s work on behalf of vehicle suppliers includes advocating for automated-vehicle legislation, programs and policies to assist the motor vehicle industry’s transition to a net-zero transportation fleet, and introducing legislation focused on vehicle-technology R&D activities at the U.S. Department of Energy.
      The congresswoman also led efforts to ensure the passage of the CHIPS Act language, which provides federal funding to increase domestic semiconductor chip production.
      “It is truly an honor to receive the 2022 Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award alongside my friend, Congresswoman Haley Stevens,” Dingell said. “MEMA and the supplier industry play such a critical role in the auto industry, employing generations of hardworking men and women in Michigan and contributing billions of dollars to our nation’s economy. Together, we will continue to keep the United States at the forefront of innovation and technology, and ensure that we have a strong and healthy auto industry.”
      In the House, Stevens helped improve the auto rule of origin provisions of the USMCA and built congressional support for this vital measure. She is a leading House advocate of the CHIPS Act, and its legacy chip provision for the motor vehicle and parts sector.
      Stevens has an impressive track record of working across the aisle to deliver for Michigan’s manufacturers supporting broad competitiveness, manufacturing and business priorities in the House and often articulating these to House leadership. As chair of the House Science Committee Research & Technology Subcommittee, she has championed federal funding and training programs to assist the auto parts sector in its transition to an EV future.
      “I am unbelievably honored to receive this recognition. I’ll never stop advocating in Congress for our Michigan manufacturers and automotive suppliers,” Stevens said. “They are truly the backbone of the booming SE Michigan economy and are leading the industry in innovating our future.” 
      The Industry Champion Award is presented in the memory of Joseph Magliochetti, a former MEMA chairman who also served as the chairman and CEO of Dana Corp. until his death in 2003. He was widely recognized as a leader and a visionary in the supplier industry, and as MEMA chairman, he left a legacy of advocacy and outreach on behalf of all vehicle suppliers.
      Automotive and commercial vehicle suppliers are the largest employer of manufacturing jobs in the U.S., contributing nearly 3% of the U.S. gross domestic product.
