A press release from NWMOC and UW-Stout says about 240 people attended the 2009 conference, which included 38 demonstrations, simulations and workshops for small- to mid-sized manufacturers.

Event Chairwoman Joni Geroux said, “We are striving to provide our attendees with valuable tools and information to achieve and sustain profitability, including methods surrounding the people within their organization, the processes they practice on the plant floor and throughout the company, and opportunities for sustainability practices that improve their bottom line.”
