What You Need to Know: Virtual SMART Manufacturing Conference September 30 and October 1, 2020…
A big thank you for making this event such a success! The theme of “Welcome to the Rev-olution” led us through the day as we learned about the new hemp processing frontier from Steve Groff of Groff North America followed by an opportunity to experience hemp products, learn more about Harley-Davidson and network. John Mocny, general manager of Harley-Davidson’s York plant then shared Harley-Davidson’s vision for the future and how the company is making that integral part our region plays in this global company’s success. The keynote was followed by a happy our featuring our custom cocktail “The Electric Ride” and more opportunities to network.
