The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), in collaboration with Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Wisconsin Center for Manufacturing & Productivity, Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership, and the state's regional economic development organizations, will host six informational workshops throughout the state on supply chain readiness.
Info sessions will be held in Pewaukee, Platteville, Sturtevant, Green Bay, Madison and Superior. Additional details on dates, times, and locations are available at WisconnValley.WI.gov.
The Supplier Readiness Series will include information to help manufacturers respond to industrial innovation trends that are impacting the industry, including updates to statewide resources designed to help improve productivity, prepare for Industry 4.0 and establish a path for global competitiveness.
Once Foxconn's Wisconn Valley Science & Technology Park is fully operational, the company is expected to make $4.26 billion in supplier purchases annually, with roughly one-third being sourced from Wisconsin .
The informational sessions are free, but advanced registration is required. RSVP here.
