He'll take the time to answer specific questions and remove obstacles so you leave ready to make at least one change that helps you get better results, live a better life...or both.

  • It’s Time Your Company Got “Smart”: Industry 4.0 is Ready for Prime TimeConnected machines and IIoT are no longer the realm of just the biggest manufacturing companies. The latest technologies are now affordable, easy to implement, and ready to drive real value for your business. Industry 4.0 will make your company more efficient from the plant floor to the C-Suite. Hear local small manufacturers talk about the technologies, best practices, and results they have seen through their implementation of Industry 4.0.

  • Achieve Operational Excellence from People to PlantOperational excellence is within reach for your company, but only if you engage every employee. Hear local manufacturing executives discuss how they reduced costs, improved efficiency, and even developed new products through engaging their front-line workers. Drive progress and process perfection through more productive people!

From legislation and industry standards to tariffs and EPA compliance, manufacturers have to be ready to adjust to a changing landscape.
