Marty Romitti Travels to NW Pennsylvania to Discuss Supply Chain Opportunities

November 22, 2013

CREC Senior Vice President Marty Romitti was in Meadville Pennsylvania on November 22 to discuss opportunities for small businesses to supply the transportation equipment manufacturing and shale gas production industries.  In partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration and Entreworks Consulting, CREC is conducting a comprehensive manufacturing supply chain analysis for Northwest Pennsylvania along with hosting matchmaking events designed to help local small businesses capture new supply chain opportunities identified through the research analysis.  This project is part of the Obama Administration’s newly launched “Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership.” The IMCP program provides planning grants and investments to support the creation of economic development strategies that recognize the community’s comparative advantages as a place to do business, invest in public goods, and encourage collaboration between multiple different entities to expand the area’s commercial appeal to investors.
