Traverse Connect has initiated a partnership with the Grand Traverse Area Manufacturing Council to strengthen the manufacturing industry and increase economic investment in the Grand Traverse region. Formal collaboration between our two organizations will enhance our respective efforts and help to raise the profile of the Grand Traverse region as a leader in providing a supportive environment for manufacturing companies to grow and prosper.
The first initiative of this partnership is the new Resources for Manufacturing Companies page on the Traverse Connect website. This page is intended to provide manufacturers with the resources they need to grow and expand their businesses and to improve the sustainability and growth of the local manufacturing sector by increasing the awareness and utilization of resources available to our local businesses.
This new page offers an abundance of resources, contacts, and information in each of these four areas:
- Integrating Technology and Increasing Efficiency
- Funding and Grants
- Addressing the Supply Chain & Business Development
- Recruiting, Training & Retaining Talent
