Manex Supports North Bay Manufacturers

The Corporation for Manufacturing Excellence and the North Bay iHub launch a new partnership to benefit North Bay manufacturers.

July 26, 2012 - PRLog -- The North Bay iHub is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Corporation for Manufacturing Excellence (Manex) to promote the exchange of ideas and provide additional resources for manufacturers in the North Bay. Manex and the iHub, supported in part by a grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will jointly produce an ongoing series of events featuring speakers and discussions specifically geared toward North Bay manufacturers.

“The North Bay is home to a great many innovative and successful manufacturing operations, some of which have a long history in the region,” says Michael Newell, iHub Executive Director. “Growth is still challenging in the current economic climate,.  The aim of this new program is to help regional manufacturers create growth strategies that will effectively capitalize on our local strengths.”

Manex is a premier consulting firm with a focus on small to midsize manufacturers, leveraging leading edge programs and technologies across key impact areas to provide strategic solutions for its clients. It has already implemented a successful partnership with one of the North Bay iHub’s sister innovation hubs,  i-GATE in Livermore.  “Manex has a deep commitment to improving manufacturing outcomes through knowledge transfer and implementation,” says Gene Russell, CEO and Executive Director of Manex, “we are especially pleased to have a nonprofit partner in the iHub, which allows us to bring our experience and expertise to bear for the benefit of regional manufacturers.”

The first joint North Bay event will take place at the Sonoma Mountain Village Event Center on September 19, featuring speakers and panelists under the theme of top-line growth strategies for North Bay manufacturers emerging from the Great Recession. “These events will serve as a forum for local manufacturers to address common concerns,” says Mr. Newell, “as well as giving us and our partners at Manex the opportunity to learn how we can best support innovation and growth in the critical manufacturing sector.”

Additional details on the event will be posted at http://www.northbayihub.org.
