Manufacturers Alliance

The Manufacturers Alliance is comprised of local manufacturing entities that meet monthly to to discuss the industry and share opportunities, issues, and concerns with the EDC. The Alliance also partners with local universities and community colleges for joint training opportunities, leadership training, networking, and the sharing of resources.
These meetings are held quarterly at the Smartzone building. Recent topics of discussion included Career Technical Education (CTE) in the local school district and workforce development in manufacturing and related fields.
If you have any questions or are interested in being a part of the Manufacturers Alliance, please email Tracey Laitinen at tlaitinen@saultcity.com.
