Making Connections: Bolingbrook Manufacturing Matchmaking

Posted by Amy Fitzgerald on May 15, 2015 10:33:38 AM

The latest Manufacturing Matchmaking event brought together more than 35 organizations focused on manufacturing competitiveness yesterday.

Manufacturing firms represented capabilities in industries like automotive, medial devices, military and defense, mining, aerospace, construction equipment and many more. Participating manufacturers were hoping to identify future sales or procurement opportunities with others in attendance and many positive interactions were reported through initial evaluations.

"We appreciate the opportunity to access potential customers that you could not reach ordinarily."

Companies also have the opportunity to engage with local organizations focused on value-added services for their manufacturing processes and business systems. Participating vendors include logistics and packaging, technical publications, financial institutions, utilities, project management, and more.
