Economic Development Work Continues

Jerry Sagona, VP of Business Development attended the Design-2-Part Show in Schaumburg. Jerry uses tradeshows and events like this to continue to create connections and extend the awareness of the Rockford Region to others who are in need of quality parts and innovative solutions.

Design-2-Part brings together American-based contract manufacturers with OEMs and product manufacturers who need their services. This allows companies to find suppliers located within the US. During this three-day event, there are over 220 exhibitors that feature innovative contract products.

These exhibitors feature more than 300 manufacturing categories including metal, plastics, rubber, and electronics.

Multiple companies from the region were in attendance for the event. This type of tradeshow provides companies with the opportunity to strengthen supply chains during a time when there has been disruption for many manufacturers.
