The Chicago Manufacturing Renaissance Council (CMRC) is a coalition of business, labor, government, and community leaders working to make Chicago the global leader in advanced manufacturing. We operate throughout the nine-county region to reform policy and implement practical projects in support of advanced manufacturing.
