It was a full house at the Rockford Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 Celebration of Manufacturing.
Keynote speaker Greg Baise, President & CEO of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association (IMA), spoke about the importance of manufacturing jobs to the economy, the critical role of training and apprenticeship programs and credential generation for engineering and technical jobs, as well as the importance of creating a business-friendly environment that will attract companies to Illinois.
Rockford Specialties is proud to be part of the longstanding tradition of manufacturing in the Rock River Valley. And like many local manufacturers we spoke to at the event, we’re seeing an upwards trend in reshoring as businesses look to minimize inventory costs by utilizing more localized vendors with expertise in providing quick turnaround and shorter lead times.
To meet these needs for our customers, Rockford Specialties has invested in new hi-tech equipment that enables us to expedite throughput and ensure on-time delivery, all while maintaining exacting quality standards. With further initiatives in development for 2015, we’re committed to ongoing improvement in automation and modernization of processes as the key to short term growth as well as long term success.
