Strong manufacturers are key to a strong Pennsylvania economy and are often the source of new innovations that drive economic growth.
Established Manufacturers are often so busy running their companies that they don’t have time and resources to evaluate and pursue advances that will grow their businesses to the next level.
Ben Franklin supports these companies with a robust set of resources including connections to centers of excellence at colleges and universities, support for implementing innovative internal processes that will keep manufacturers competitive in the global market, and help with strategic planning, product development, expanding operational capabilities and more.
With a reputation for success, our clients often go on to launch new products, add employees, expand operations and grow faster than their peers.
Pennsylvania is a big state, and there are substantially different economic development needs in each region. With four centers in Pittsburgh, State College, Bethlehem, and Philadelphia, Ben Franklin is strategically positioned to serve clients throughout the Commonwealth, with supports tailored to each region.
That includes efforts in the state’s cities, suburban, and rural areas to foster innovation and create economic opportunities.
