Manufacturing summit helps produce success

Manufacturing summit helps produce success

FAIRFIELD - Manufacturers can learn about strategies for success at a special summit on May 5 in Fairfield.

Although the high-profile collapses of the housing and financial industries have gotten more attention, the manufacturing industry has also been hammered by the economic recession.

'This is a time when companies need to not only survive, but also must do the planning that will allow them to emerge stronger as the recession ends,' said Curt Johnston, Fairfield's assistant director of economic development, in a statement.

The Solano County Manufacturing Summit is scheduled for 7:15 a.m. May 5 at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Fairfield.
