Rockford manufacturing industry professionals gather for annual expo


The Rockford Chamber of Commerce held its “Celebration of Manufacturing” symposium at the Riverview Inn and Suites (formerly Cliffbreakers) on Thursday, where producers, and businesses that support the manufacturing industry, showcased their goods and services.

“About half are actual manufacturers who are making parts for the aerospace industry, the automotive industry, custom orders, and what have you,” said Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Einar Forsman. “So, they’re here to demostrate what their capabilities are and make sure people are aware of all they can do.”

The event also hands out awards for an individual who has advocated for Rockford manufacturing, as well as Manufacturer of the Year.
