In Pennsylvania, there’s a group of people who just won’t stop talking about robots. And we’re listening to them. NEFF is partnering with groups like ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) to explore how robotics can enhance the future of American manufacturing.

“This is where our industry is heading,” explained Ben Mintz of NEFF. “We are involved with ARM, and other groups. I strongly encourage everyone to connect with local organizations and find out how to collaborate. Throughout our industry, we all share common goals.”

Mintz suggested that NEFF clients and manufacturers might want to join the Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program (MEP) – a national network of manufacturing extension partnership centers located in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. MEP provides companies with services and access to public and private resources to enhance growth, improve productivity, reduce costs, and expand capacity.

He also suggested Manufacturing USA Network as another resource.
