Why Manufacturing Here Matters

Manufacturing Locally Matters

If you can invent it locally, you should be able to manufacture it locally. Local production offers unique competitive advantages for innovators.

  • Meet manufacturers and suppliers in person to review designs and discuss strategies
  • Have a front-row seat when your product comes off the line
  • Benefit from strengthened communication, quality control, and shorter lead times
  • Avoid the unexpected tariffs, shipping costs, and management overhead of overseas partnerships
  • Contribute to the local economy
  • Reduce your carbon footprint
