The Office of Distance Education and eLearning highlighted the Ohio Manufacturing Institute’s Manufacturing Now podcast series for International Podcast Day.
The podcast series regularly pushes the ongoing and integral conversation about the future of manufacturing and new technologies to center stage.
Podcast host Kathryn Kelley, executive director of the Ohio Manufacturing Institute, recently sat down with Bronson Jones, president and CEO of Banner Metals Group, a Columbus-based group that provides manufacturing and engineering services to industries ranging from aerospace and automotive to medical, building and industrial.
In the episode, Kelley and Jones discuss the effects of robotics and additive manufacturing on traditional processes, new skill sets demanded of workers in an age of emerging technologies and, of course, flying cars.
Each month, Kelley talks shop with academics, engineers, executives and government leaders, as she and her guests explore the economic and community impact of advanced manufacturing and related businesses and partnerships.
In the most recent episode of Manufacturing Now, GROW Licking County executive director Nate Strum discusses how economic development professionals help foster successful companies through the development of regional business and educational partnerships. He also talks about the manufacturing strategic plan of GROW Licking County, which provides economic development support for businesses to expand or relocate in Licking County, Ohio, just east of Franklin County.
