The benefits of sustainable manufacturing practices extend past environmental considerations. At EASTEC, the largest manufacturing event on the East Coast, the opening keynote presentation will focus on converging additive manufacturing and ecofriendly sustainable packaging solutions and the development of innovative solutions in both areas.
EASTEC will take place May 14-16 at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts, highlighting the region’s manufacturing leadership and history. Produced by SME and AMT, the biennial event ― now in its 35th edition ― showcases the latest manufacturing technologies and provides access to industry experts sharing insights on how to foster innovation, increase productivity and improve financial performance.
A key industry leader, Marty Guay, vice president, business development, Stanley Black & Decker, will open EASTEC with his keynote on how the company is reigniting an innovative ecosystem to make the northeast a leader in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Guay will discuss the partnership between Stanley Black & Decker and Techstars, the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed.
