A manufacturing revolution is underway, and with a tsunami of change ready to hit shop floors, the Quad Cities Manufacturing Innovation Hub is here to help local companies. The Hub provides a network of resources and support for manufacturers and others in the defense industry to network, collaborate and learn about the technological and digital trends that will transform the face of their industry.
In addition, changes in defense spending will have a ripple effect across Illinois, requiring companies and communities to quickly adapt to remain competitive. The Illinois Defense Industry Adjustment (DIA) Program – of which the Hub is a part -- supports the state’s defense and manufacturing supply chain in areas considered to be at high risk for those market changes, delivering resources and providing new insights that help companies and communities grow, diversify, and become more resilient.
Listen to those associated with the program explain more here.
