Manufacturing Day 2017 Recap


Manufacturing Day 2017, which occurred on October 6th (and throughout the entire month), was a huge success! Our Recap  below features highlights from some of the Manufacturing Day events that CMTC participated in.  

View/Download Recap

On Wednesday, October 18, 2017, a group of Companies, including four CMTC clients (Accurate Dial & Nameplate, California Tool & Die, Sustainable Tech, and Hi Tech Precision), participated in the Baja California (Mexico) Industrial Supplier Trade Tour. The objective of this trip was for small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) to learn about the Baja California (Mexico) Industrial Sector which represents access to $11 billion of supplier opportunities. 

Port of Los Angeles 

March 7, 2017

CMTC, the City of Corona’s Economic Development Team and the Corona Chamber visited the Port of Los Angeles to learn about exporting and globalization.

A group of 10 small and medium-sized manufacturers from the City of Corona experienced the sights and sounds of the busy Port of Los Angeles while on a 90 minute boat tour on Tuesday, March 7th. The group learned first-hand about the importance of the port with respect to global trade from Jim MacLellan, Director of Trade Development for the Port of LA. They also learned about the benefits of exporting from CMTC's ExporTech program advisor Elizabeth Glynn.

Baja Manufacturing Program 
June 14, 2016


A happy crowd of 41 people representing manufacturing, banking, U.S. Department of Commerce, CMTC and U.S. Mexico Chamber all returned to the U.S. after their day long visit to Mexico. They all traveled to Mexico to connect with the U.S. Consul General in Tijuana and visited two manufacturing plants (medical device and aerospace). The goal was to meet Baja Trade professionals and learn how to access and do business in Mexico. Cost to participate was only $67 plus lunch.
