Manufacturing Day image 1

OBI hosted a webinar Oct. 7 to mark Manufacturing Day. Webinar participants discussed the importance of this large and varied industry sector in Oregon. They revisited OBI’s inaugural Manufacturing and Innovation Roadshow, which toured two dozen manufacturers in August during a journey that touched almost all parts of the state. The hourlong webinar also featured a panel of manufacturing leaders, who discussed the challenges of the past two years and reflected on successes.

The panel of manufacturing leaders included:

Alicia Chapman, CEO of Willamette Technical Fabricators

Marv Nelson, president, A-dec

Khanh Tran, government and public affairs manager, Schnitzer Steel.
