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 grow, diversify, and stay competitive in the future as market forces change. But we know that a vibrant, healthy community is a connected community – one whose members support each other as together they prepare for the future. This is why we’re thrilled to announce that Northwest Bank & Trust has joined forces with the Hub as a co-presenting sponsor for our outreach events.

Outreach events are some of the key programs and services the Hub offers to help businesses – particularly those in the manufacturing and Dept. of Defense supply chain – network, collaborate and learn about the technological and digital changes that will transform the face of their industry. Twice-monthly Hub Huddles are early-morning coffee and conversations featuring tips to help businesses improve now.  Monthly User Groups give attendees the chance to hear from local experts about eight emerging technologies and best practices for their use.

Sign up for any (or for all of them!) here.
