Gray Construction CEO Stephen Gray Discusses How Innovations in Infrastructure Will Boost Manufacturing
As a key driver of global competitiveness, innovation is at the forefront of advancing every industry in the world—and transportation infrastructure is no different. For example, construction materials and methods used to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure are being designed to be more efficient, reliable and durable. Three-D printers are producing reinforced structural beams for the construction of buildings and bridges. There are even gravity-defying robots being built that promise to 3D print a steel bridge in mid-air.
These are just a few of the changes that will not only revolutionize the future of infrastructure maintenance and rehabilitation, they also hold the promise of creating American manufacturing jobs that will help us better fulfill our economic potential.
Gray Construction President & CEO Stephen Gray recently shed light on these innovations—and the impact they will have on manufacturing—in his latest Area Development feature.
“Just as manufacturing is seeing rapid changes in efficiency and production thanks to advanced technology, transportation infrastructure is on the cusp of this transformation as well,” said Gray.
