Manufacturing Carees

Please join us for our annual industry event to be held at our Finals Competition Friday, April 8, 2016 on the California University of PA Convocation Center 12-2PM (Lunch will be served).

 

Preparing Your Company to be Future Strong: Strategies to Implement for the Next Era of Innovation and Global Growth

As we bury ourselves in the daily work of leading people, answering emails, supporting customers, staff meetings, production meetings, quality problems and the like, it will be so easy to look past the fact that we live in amazing times.

 

-Manufacturing processes are transforming with lightning speed.

-Purchasing practices are becoming more precise and sophisticated.

-Globalization is impacting manufacturing companies of all sizes.

-Technological advances are revolutionizing entire industries.

-Baby boomer retirements and the skills shortage are challenging manufactures to be proactive in recruiting the next generation of workers.

 

The coming 5 years hold promise for those manufacturers who can keep up or better yet anticipate and stay ahead of the curve. Will you?
