The Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties (MACC/DC) is holding a Summer Networking event on Wednesday, August 23 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The gathering will take place at Locust Lane Brewery, Malvern’s Newest Craft Brewery.
MACC/DC strives to establish and maintain a strong partnership between manufacturers and private sector partners. Networking events such as these helps foster collaboration with a focus on helping the manufacturing industry utilize talent and available resources to develop and advance the technical skills of their workforce and provide opportunities for growth and increased profitability.
“Attending our networking events is a key way for manufacturers to meet potential customers and vendors,” said Ralf Weiser, Project Management Manager for Aerzen USA and MACC/DC board chair. “Manufacturers also have the opportunity to learn about the services provided by MACC/DC as well as its parent organization, the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC).”
“Hiring and training new employees has become a very difficult task in a low unemployment market situation so the Alliance seeks to help manufacturers establish an employee pipeline as well as increase business, reduce company risk and costs, and offer other support,” he said. “And let’s not overlook that our events are fun and engaging.”
The event will include beers crafted on-site, light appetizers and a brewery tour. Please invite a manufacturing colleague to join you at this event to help us grow the Alliance! Pre-registration is required. This event is generously sponsored by Aerzen USA, Kreischer Miller, MacElree Harvey, and M&T Bank.
