Manufacturing. You know, making stuff.
Our DC based friend Pat Cleary is a believer in it. With giants like GM falling to their knees on both sides of the Atlantic and export economies in Asia still feeling the after effects of the bout of cold turkey in US consumption he’s picked a great time to seek to start a global online community to discuss the issues facing manufacturing the world over.
ManufacturingCrunch endeavors to be the first-of-its-kinds global online manufacturing community, a place where manufacturers — and those who care about manufacturing — can come to debate, discuss or share information on issues of mutual interest. Interested parties can find out more at www.MfgCrunch.com. The platform already has representation from both sides of the Atlantic. On the site there is a Google news feed on manufacturing, a Twitter feed and two daily news feeds — one from the US and one from the EU — on manufacturing.
