Manufacturing in the United States has evolved tremendously over the last three decades. So, too, have the talented professionals who work in the manufacturing sector. Global competition has caused a continuous examination of ways to improve efficiencies, cut waste, optimize supply chain methodologies, and maximize cash flow.
