The IndustryWeek Best Plants Conference Video Collection: One of an occasional series featuring the "best of" excerpts from the event's keynote speeches.

Pinchuk, a keynote speaker at the 2014 IW Best Plants Conference, fired up attendees with his speech about reinvigorating the industry and making manufacturing once again part of the American dream.

Pinchuk was one of five top executives headlining the annual conference, which was held in May at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, Wisc.

The 2015 IndustryWeek Best Plants Conference, slated for May 2015, will be held in Charlotte, N.C. with an equally impressive – an inspiring – panel of speakers.
