The South County Economic Development Council is excited to announce our newest partner California Manufacturing Technology Consulting. Over the next nine months we will work together to perform much needed outreach to the manufacturing sector here in South County San Diego. The outreach will focus on assisting manufacturers prevent, prepare, and respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This program is in conjunction with the US Department of Commerce and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Many businesses have faced interruption to their operations due to the ongoing pandemic and we are excited to work with these groups as we assist in providing access to resources for small and medium sized manufacturers. As we look to recovery and moving our economy forward it will be important to ensure supply chain operators are aware of resources afforded them by both government and private entities.
The SCEDC’s role in this outreach is to perform triage and education around what is available and where to access various programs. Many businesses continued to struggle with locating programs developed specifically for their industry and employee base. This program has been designed to ensure no program goes underutilized due to lack of visibility.
Over the coming weeks and months, we are looking to partner with several more organizations focused on diverse sectors of the business community to help provide much needed resources to all. For the most up to date program information please continue to visit our COVID-19 page for regularly updated information.
If you are a manufacturer in the South County and would like to learn more about programs and opportunities available to you, we encourage you to provide your information here. Efrain Ibarra, Assistant Director at the SCEDC will be on contact with you shortly.
