Manufacturers throughout the United States are facing new challenges as well as growth and expansion opportunities. Given the manufacturing industry’s significant role in providing both direct and indirect jobs and wages, how firms react to these conditions is critical not only to the companies themselves, but to our nation.
This session focuses on current national manufacturing trends, challenges, and opportunities, with a particularly emphasis on implications for smaller manufacturers, defined as those with fewer than 500 employees. These small manufacturers account for a majority manufacturing activity.
Attendees will discover the macro- and micro manufacturing trends and explore what they suggest for policies, practices and strategies that can help accelerate manufacturing growth across the nation. Internal manufacturing finance professionals, accounting and finance practitioners and manufacturing firm advisors will learn how to help companies minimize the impact of challenges, maximize opportunities for growth and enhance overall competitiveness and resiliency.
