Manufacturing has a higher multiplier effect on the economy than any other sector. For every $1 in manufacturing value added, $1.4 in additional value is created in other sectors. (US Dept. of Commerce - EE Times).
The Manufacturing Mart officially opened its doors within The Galleria in Downtown Cleveland on November 8, 2010. Did you know that Cleveland is located within 600 miles of 60% of all U.S. & Canadian manufacturing locations?
Mary Kaye Denning founded The Mart with the intention of reinvigorating the manufacturing industry in the Rust Belt. Her goal was to unite manufacturers of components, equipment, and consumer products with OEMs. Traditionally, these cutting-edge manufacturers lacked a definitive and effective way of illustrating their capabilities to a hungry OEM market.
Their first Expo last month featured over 150 exhibitors, 3000 North American manufacturers, engineers, inventors and purchasers covering all industries.
