DVIRCPIDC is excited to highlight the Greater Philadelphia Manufacturing Summit hosted by DVIRC on October 1, 2014. PIDC shares in DVIRC’s mission to help support the growth of manufacturing businesses and collaborates often on events and programs to achieve that goal.

There are over 5,000 small, medium and large manufacturers in greater Philadelphia designing and manufacturing everything from chocolate to rocket launchers and medical devices to state of the art helicopters; empowered by high precision machining, electronics and electrical equipment contract manufacturing.

U.S. manufacturing exemplifies the American competitive spirit and innovative passion that drives progress and growth, and is alive and well in Greater Philadelphia!

Be inspired to energize your business, celebrate advanced manufacturing, and learn the latest best practices to support business growth, continuous improvement and workforce development.  Reserve your seat today.
