What does the future hold for the manufacturing industry and specifically, with minority business enterprise (MBE) manufacturers? Join leaders from BMW, Ingersoll Rand, Westrock, Grady and others on August 16, 2017 to network, discuss emerging trends and opportunities in the fast-evolving manufacturing industry.
The MBDA Business Center-Atlanta (MBC) located in Atlanta’s Technology Square — a hotbed for corporate innovation centers — will host the event, now in its second year. Held at Georgia Tech’s Global Learning Center, this event has grown into a hub for leading MBE Manufacturers to convene. More than 200 MBE manufacturers attended last year’s Summit and that number is expected to increase at this year’s event.
Time after time, we hear manufacturing must evolve. Not only is it important for the industry to incorporate well-known tools such as Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma to thrive, but growth also includes a commitment to building trust and expanding transactions among diverse suppliers.
Studies show most businesses prefer to work with companies they know and trust, regardless of race or ethnicity. The National MBE Manufacturers Summit 2017 makes it possible for large corporate supply chains to build that trust with MBE manufacturers to break barriers related to network access. This event is designed to facilitate greater access to contracting opportunities for MBEs. Attendees will explore how plants, national laboratories, supply chains, and logistics are adapting and shaping the future of advanced manufacturing — and how to keep pace with the changes taking place.
