MSU workshop offers manufacturing advice
INDIANOLA -- The Mississippi Make it in America team is providing a free Reshoring Opportunities Workshop Oct. 30 at the Capps Center in Indianola, Mississippi.
The workshop’s goal is to assist companies in bringing advanced jobs back to Mississippi by enhancing skills and building competitiveness. Several units within Mississippi State University are part of this effort, including the Franklin Furniture Institute in the Division of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine.
The workshop will cover reshoring concepts and trends. It will help companies compare the overall costs of manufacturing in the U.S. and overseas. Sessions will provide participants the opportunity to identify and strengthen their supply chains.
The agenda includes morning and afternoon breakout sessions, a reshoring presentation and lunch. Participants may choose to attend the morning session from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. or the afternoon session from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There is no cost to attend the workshop.
The workshop is funded through a Make it in America challenge grant. The Mississippi Make it in America team includes MSU, InnovateMEP Mississippi, the Mississippi Development Authority, the Reshoring Initiative, Itawamba Community College, East Mississippi Community College, Mississippi Delta Community College, Holmes Community College, the Three Rivers Planning and Development District, and the South Delta Planning and Development District.
