Tennessee Manufacturers Association Manufacturing Roadshow in Jackson

The University of Tennessee Center for Industrial Services (UT CIS) was a presenting sponsor of the Nov. 2, 2022 Tennessee Manufacturers Association Manufacturing Roadshow held at UT’s West Tennessee Ag Research and Education Center in Jackson, TN.

During the meeting, attendees heard from a panel of West Tennessee automotive manufacturers who discussed challenges to their success in the region. LaDon Byars with Colonial Diversified Polymer Products, LLC in Dyersburg, TN specifically mentioned how their interaction with UT CIS had been beneficial in their plant’s continued improvement. Vanessa Presson, the HR Manager of the new Ford Blue Oval site, provided insights into Ford and their associated suppliers workforce development needs. Andre Temple, UT CIS Solutions Consultant spoke to the group and emphasized how UT CIS is a resource for all manufacturers in Tennessee and that he is just a phone call or email away from engaging them around their needs.

New UT CIS Business Development Manager, Todd Reeves, commenting on the event said, “participating in this event and the upcoming event in Cleveland, TN on Nov 9th, is a key example of UT CIS’s ongoing support for Tennessee Manufacturing by raising awareness and providing solutions to companies.”
