Manufacturing Heroes: Do We Need a New Type?
ShopBot Tools Founder and CEO Ted Hall published an article titled “Manufacturing Heroes” in which he addresses a problem facing local economies: the lack of a reliable support base. The piece explains how the changing manufacturing landscape and the rise of “maker” culture requires a new type of investment in order to invigorate our local economies and bring jobs into communities. To survive as a small business today, an investment can no longer just be a windfall allowing production to be shipped overseas. Instead, the investor needs to hold a genuine interest in the company’s operation, mission, and steady growth.
This is the first in a series of articles by Ted Hall on our manufacturing future and new fabrication technologies.
