To help manufacturers evolve their business strategies to adapt to a changing technology landscape, RKL hosted its 4th Annual Growth and Profitability Manufacturing and Distribution Forum at Spooky Nook Sports in Manheim, PA on September 18, 2018. One hundred M&D executives and leaders attended the 2018 installment of RKL’s exclusive industry focused educational event, which featured an agenda packed with timely insights and information on workforce automation, blockchain, Research & Development tax credits, robotics, emerging technologies and tax reform.
Keynote speaker Brent Barcey, FANUC America Executive Director of Global Sales, kicked off the event by sharing examples of how increased automation led to greater optimization of resources and reduction in costs for various companies in the M&D industry. These forward-thinking issues set the tone for the rest of the event, which featured expert advice from RKL professionals during breakout sessions. From increasing transparency within the supply chain to evaluating ROI for technology investments to safeguarding intellectual property, attendees gained fresh perspectives on ways to maximize their financial and operational capabilities now and into the future.
