Three senior level officials in President Barack Obama's White House will be at M-7 Technologies this morning to discuss American manufacturing, according to the White House's press office.
It's expected that an announcement about manufacturing in Northeast Ohio will be made, the exact details of which were unclear Wednesday afternoon.
Attending will be White House National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling, acting U.S. Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank and Under Secretary of Defense Frank Kendall.

In addition, U.S. Rep. Timothy J. Ryan and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown are scheduled to attend.
Releases from their offices say the discussion will be about ''efforts to grow Northeast Ohio's manufacturing base.''
A message left with the U.S. Commerce Department was not returned.
for GOP Ryan
WARREN - Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will be campaigning in northeast Ohio today, but not in the Mahoning Valley.
The U.S. representative from Wisconsin will hold a rally at Walsh University in North Canton, starting about 9:30 a.m., the Mitt Romney campaign announced Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a fundraiser that Ryan was expected to attend in Trumbull County today has been postponed, a source with knowledge of the event said.
Ryan was picked by GOP presidential hopeful Romney on Saturday to join him on the ticket. The two made their debut later that day at a naval museum in Norfolk, Va., to begin a campaign trip that included battleground Ohio.
Also in Ohio, Rick Santorum, former presidential candidate and U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, campaigned Wednesday in Akron for the Romney-Ryan ticket.
M-7 was launched in 2004 and provides parts and assemblies for a wide variety of industries in several specialized fields, including energy, aerospace, defense, automotive and construction.
The company's building covers more than 46,000 square feet at the Ohio Works site.
According to its website, the company works to ''reduce manufacturing costs, improve product and service quality, and to reduce the cycle time required to manufacture or repair heavy industrial products.''
In May, Vice President Joe Biden was at M-7 for a campaign speech.
