Hub promotes region at American Manufacturing Expo

The Northeast Tennessee Regional Hub was among the presenters August 8-10 at one of America’s largest gatherings of manufacturing companies, sharing the story of how the Hub and one of its partners, Anthill, are helping our region’s manufacturers address the labor shortage.

Hub Chief Operating Officer Mitch Miller and Anthill CEO Muriel Clauson Closs met with manufacturers from across the country at the Advanced Manufacturing Expo in Grand Rapids, MI, attended by more than 3,000 manufacturing companies. Attendees learned how the Hub and Anthill are collaborating to help manufacturers in Northeast Tennessee increase employee satisfaction and become more attractive to new hires.

“All these manufacturers heard how we’re doing things differently, how we are providing a solution in a new way to a problem that everyone is having tied to workforce,” Miller said. “They've seen the innovation and the creativity happening in Northeast Tennessee. That will open doors to create relationships with individuals at those companies where we can say, ‘If you’re looking to do something on the east coast, this is the place you want to consider first.’”

The Hub and TVA have partnered to help provide Anthill services to manufacturers in Northeast Tennessee through a workforce development grant. “This event highlights that the NETNHUB and Anthill partnership is making a difference in how advanced manufacturers are thinking about engaging and training the manufacturing workforce,” said Closs. “I’m thrilled to see our partnership featured as a case study of successful workforce development.”
