It may be surprising to learn that there is money available to help manufacturers and other companies to keep engineering and manufacturing jobs here in the United States. Many efforts to improve product, process and equipment technologies – including lean manufacturing efforts – can qualify. There are a number of important funding sources available to reduce the net cost of this essential experimental development work, including both grants and tax credits. This session will provide a brief, friendly overview of the various federal and state programs and requirements, and will include a Q&A session. Many companies receive many thousands – even millions – of dollars in benefits each year under these programs. Shouldn’t your company be one of them?
