Manufacturing


Manufacturing Passion

When it comes to manufacturing, we are experts regardless of the specific topic.  Whether strategy or operational performance, it is part of what we do.  In fact, we are passionate about manufacturing!  Specifically, we are excited about…

  • Its resurgence in the United States
  • The significant opportunity for exporting
  • The increasing popularity with young professionals
  • The future of additive manufacturing/ 3D printing
  • The quick deliveries and mass customization enticing customers
  • The results that can be achieved with the adoption of technology, automation, IoT, robots and more.
  • And how manufacturing is turning long-held beliefs on their head – not only is the U.S. a powerhouse but Inland Southern California is “the place to be”!

Our Involvement

Thus, we lead and participate in many organizations to support the manufacturing industry and related professions and students.  For example, our founder partners with the head of Harvey Mudd’s manufacturing practice, sits on the Board of Directors of the Inland Empire Economic Partnership and the Inland Economic Growth & Opportunity initiative with a focus on advanced manufacturing, leads the APICS Inland Empire chapter and chairs the innovation awards of the Manufacturers Council of the Inland Empire.
