Future of Manufacturing in Montgomery County

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Montgomery County has the most manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania. Today’s manufacturers do not always look like the smokestacks and assembly lines from the past. Come hear about how manufacturing is evolving and how it can grow within our employment centers and downtowns, providing excellent jobs and economic benefits for the community. This free event will be highlighted by a moderated panel discussion, featuring various manufacturers in the county, on issues experienced and how municipalities can support manufacturing businesses. This jointly sponsored event with the Montgomery County Commerce Department will also explore the overall vision of the county to enable a diverse manufacturing sector. Attendees will also have an opportunity to see the new and innovative Ambler Yards project, where the adaptive reuse of a former chemical production site is now home to a cutting-edge business campus that includes design firms, co-working spaces, 3D printing, and warehousing.

Vibrant Economy
This event corresponds to the Vibrant Economy theme of Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, Montgomery County's nationally awarded comprehensive plan
