Consider the DRMA business lead email service as a source for connecting with potential customers who are looking for manufacturing suppliers. And remember to use the service if you are over capacity and need to outsource work. Email Shay and she’ll explain the process.

We’re having great success in raising the awareness of the great careers our region’s manufacturing industry offers with our Power Lunches and career day activities! Do you have a passion for growing your workforce pipeline and talking with young people? Please volunteer a couple hours of your time and expertise during a Power Lunch and speak with students one on one about why you love working in manufacturing. Talking points will be provided to you. This is an easy and enjoyable way for you to impact your future workforce! We have a need RIGHT NOW for a few volunteers for a career fair at Belmont High School on 11/18.
