Vertech Teams Up with CESMII to Drive Innovation in the Smart Manufacturing Space

Vertech has some exciting news to share... We've just become a member of CESMII, the Smart Manufacturing Institute! We’re joining forces with other smart manufacturing experts to bring about a revolution in U.S. manufacturing. We’re talking Digital Transformation, Industry 4.0, and beyond.


“It’s no secret that smart manufacturing represents how organizations will succeed in the coming years and decades,” commented Titus Crabb, Vertech’s President. “And partnering with CESMII allows us to put our best foot forward by collaborating with the best and brightest minds in the smart manufacturing space. We’re looking forward to building great things as part of CESMII."




So, have you heard about CESMII (pronounced sez-ME)? They're a non-profit institute that was founded in 2016 to support the smart manufacturing industry. They help businesses succeed through industry networking, education, and workforce development. They even fund research projects, spearheading a nationwide effort to produce, test, and deploy SM technologies. Plus, CESMII has brought to life the Smart Manufacturing Innovation Platform (SMIP). SMIP helps drive digital transformation to new heights by establishing key specifications and the First Principles of Smart Manufacturing™.
