Description

FTA Supply Chain Connectivity Forum

The objective of the Supply Chain Connectivity Forums is to bring large transit Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and smaller, qualified and interested U.S. manufacturers together in an effort to facilitate the use of a higher percentage of domestic suppliers in transit products and systems. The Forums offered a venue for smaller manufacturers to learn what products are needed and find out more about investments they need to consider when entering the transit industry.

As part of the Forums, time is allocated for ten-minute introductory, private meetings between participating OEMs and prospective suppliers. Participating suppliers can include both current transit industry suppliers, and potential new suppliers.

OEMs currently confirmed to participate include: Alexander Dennis, Kiepe Electric Inc., Siemens, and United Rail, Inc. Others may be added at a later date.

This event is held in conjunction with the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) Annual Meeting and Expo, October 8-11, 2017 and will be located in the Georgia World Congree Center, Building C, Rooms C205 & C206.

Partners: National Institute of Standards in Technology (NIST), Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership (GaMEP), and DOT Federal Transit Administration.

*Breakfast and lunch will be provided
