The Institute for Supplier Collaboration (ISC) conducted its first event in conjunction with the Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics Network of the Greater Louisville Chamber of Commerce on Nov. 30, 2011. Approximately 25 individuals attended the event. Two Fortune 500 companies [Manpower and CBRE] and one automotive supplier [Katayama America] joined a diverse group of companies in attendance.
ISC Director Jim Tarabori presented a 25 minute overview on “The Case for Supplier Collaboration” followed by brief comments by Mike Render, CAT Product Manager of Aftertreatment & Cooling Products, and Michael Hesketh, President of Superb IPC. A panel discussion followed. The audience demonstrated great interest in the topic by note taking and asking numerous questions of the panel.
Similar events are being considered in conjunction with manufacturing groups in the area to generate interest in the subject of Supplier Collaboration, the Institute, and possible support from CGN.
