"Walmart is committed to bringing manufacturing to America. We do our part to develop U.S. manufacturing by building a machine that helps build these motors."

He said the small motors can be found in toys, small appliances, electric shavers, hair dryers, electronic devices and a bevy of other consumer goods.

"Researchers at many of America's best universities are hard at work on tough manufacturing challenges," said Kathleen McLaughlin, president of the Walmart Foundation. "We are excited to support the development of innovative solutions, which we hope will unlock new opportunity for manufacturing in this country."

Cindi Marsiglio, Walmart vice president of U.S. sourcing and manufacturing, said this year's grant recipients represent the ingenuity and inventive thinking that could ultimately unlock the full potential of manufacturing in the United States.

"We're thrilled the Walmart Foundation is supporting the efforts of UT Arlington to transform the processes that will ultimately drive resurgence in American manufacturing," Marsiglio said.

The Fund, which focuses on the development of domestic manufacturing with a specific goal of advancing the production or assembly of consumer products in the U.S., will provide a total of $10 million in grants over the next five years.
