ROCHESTER – After 40 representatives from area businesses and schools attended the first Seacoast Manufacturing Exchange in October, interest is building for the next quarterly session, according to Mary Ellen Humphrey, economic development specialist for the city.
The Seacoast Manufacturing Exchange is scheduled to be held Jan. 8 at 36 Industrial Way in the Ten Rod Road Business Park – off Exit 14 along Route 16. In case of inclement weather, the session will be held Jan. 15.
“There is a great deal of interest and we are hoping to expand it to the whole Seacoast area this time. It may take a few meetings to get it out there, but the feedback was very positive,” Humphreys said.
In October, participants – some from as far away as Hampton and Exeter — were excited to have the opportunity to connect and learn about potential connections. They hoped future sessions could be held at varying locations – to showcase a business’s capabilities and needs – and to use a particular theme to help focus efforts.
Future sessions are scheduled for April 9, July 9 and Oct. 8, 2014 – to help connect with others while showcasing their operations and expanding opportunities.
