In this session you’ll hear first-hand from the leaders of four local manufacturing companies who have chosen to launch or re-locate their businesses in Denver. Learn how these entrepreneurs are addressing the considerations of what are both artisan yet provocative industries, right here in Denver (and yes sausage can be provocative!). Hear about the trials, tribulations and successes that come with manufacturing high-quality, artisan products with a focus on craftsmanship over commodity. We’ll tackle it all… from maximizing market opportunities and operational considerations to labor issues and navigating policy, regulatory and legal hurdles. Gain insights into the manufacturing trends and innovations in automation, engineering, production and supply chain management these companies are embracing to gain an edge in delivering high quality products, faster and more efficiently than ever.
