The Massachusetts Manufacturing Mash-Up (Sept 28th) gave us an opportunity to get a jump start on celebrating manufacturing month. It was a fun day filled with engaging presentations, captivating exhibits, award ceremonies, and networking in an amazing venue, Polar Park in Worcester, MA. 

Through October and beyond, we will be sharing materials and interviews from the event that showcase the breadth and value of our Manufacturing Ecosystem. A big thanks goes to the Center for Advanced Manufacturing Team at MassTech (CAM), along with MassMEP, MassRobotics, FORGE, WPI, and MassHire for sponsoring this event. https://mamanufacturing.com/Mash-Up
