Manufacturing Industry Synergy Summit gathers companies in Vaasa!

The Manufacturing Industry Synergy Summit is set to gather diverse companies in Vaasa February 7-8, all eager to leverage the power of collaboration for innovation. Hosted at Wärtsilä’s Sustainable Technology Hub, founded on co-creation principles, the event aims to address the challenges posed by a rapidly changing operating environment.

The summit will showcase joint activities through the MAC (Manufacturing Excellence Center) and the AM Campus (Additive Manufacturing Campus), both officially inaugurated during the event.

The event showcases high-quality components produced by Vilpe at AM Campus. A wide range of 3D-printed pieces from other manufacturing industry companies is also on display.

In addition, the summit offers opportunities for informal networking and an exclusive factory visit, providing attendees with a hands-on experience of innovative manufacturing processes.
