“North Carolina has long been a manufacturing leader beginning with textiles, furniture, and tobacco. Since then, our footprint in manufacturing has continued to expand as we’ve attracted and started revolutionary companies specializing in the development of semiconductors, robotics, and other high tech products.
The strength of manufacturing in our region has attracted a series of federally-funded manufacturing institutes looking to bolster and support the vibrant manufacturing economy of the region. These institutes are enabling companies to manufacture products more efficiently and with less energy consumption.
The future of manufacturing in our region rests on a new wave of innovation that includes the use of robots for automation, IoT hardware and software to monitor processes, and analytics to deliver actionable insights on the energy demands of buildings and manufacturing equipment. This event will feature some of the region’s most innovative manufacturers along with the technology companies providing this next generation equipment.”
