Just wanted you to be aware of this conference. With key speakers from Sigma Aldrich, PPG, and Bayer Material Science, along with one from the EPA, it looks like an excellent opportunity to gain insight into a variety of manufacturing and operational areas.

The main themes of the conference this year are::

  • Establishing effective online training programs

Manufacturing Strategies

  • Implementing automation processes to reduce costs
  • Leveraging natural supply chains to optimize manufacturing
  • Mitigating the risks of natural disasters

Emerging Markets:

  • Driving growth through developing a manufacturing presence in emerging markets
  • Understanding the challenges and opportunities to pharmaceutical companies in the developing world
  • Creating a mutually beneficial relationship with local regulators and domestic industry players
  • Overcoming cultural and regulatory barriers of manufacturing in new locations

Operational Excellence
