The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center – West (The Center-West), Feyen Zylstra and DISHER recently announced the formation of a new Preferred Smart Manufacturing Partnership program for West Michigan manufacturers.
The program, announced Tuesday by The Right Place economic development agency, is designed to guide manufacturers through creating sustainable change as they learn about and implement Industry 4.0 technology in their business.
“In the future, West Michigan companies will need to be stronger, even more globally relevant/competitive and profitable,” The Right Place said. “Simultaneously, manufacturers must address workforce shortages, talent skill gaps and the image problem that has long driven capable individuals away from a career in manufacturing.”

The founders of Professional Apparel Company announced the launch of a new e-commerce site for medical uniforms, The Right Scrubs.
Using experience gained in over 30 years of providing uniforms for the medical industry, The Right Scrubs makes online purchases of clinical scrubs easy and efficient, regardless of whether the purchaser is buying for themselves or their whole team.
“We used our experience with veterinarians and medical professionals to identify and solve pain points related to uniform and scrubs shopping,” said Sharon VanVranken, CEO of The Right Scrubs and founder of Professional Apparel Company. “At launch, our intention was to offer a wide variety of scrubs that are easy to purchase online, backed with our personal, friendly and knowledgeable customer support team located in Battle Creek, Michigan. While the storefront’s technology is leading edge, there’s nothing that can replace the personal touch when it comes to making sure every order is accurate and every customer is delighted.”

One year after it was announced, the New Community Transformation Fund has secured $8.5 million from stakeholders looking to invest in Grand Rapids-area companies owned by people of color and is on its way to hitting the $10 million mark.
The venture fund NCTF, announced by The Right Place on Jan. 23, 2020, is aimed at boosting businesses owned by people of color in West Michigan, and it is nearing the first organizational milestone of raising $10 million, thanks to an investment of an undisclosed amount from Bank of America announced Jan. 26.
The $10 million figure is important, NCTF said, as it is the amount of capital raise necessary for the fund to make its first investments in businesses owned by people of color.
