Free Event Series Hosted by RMI Showcasing Innovative Technologies in Maryland Manufacturing

We have the opportunity to help these manufacturers learn new about new energy saving products and processes that can provide substantial savings.

On Aug. 19 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, the Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland (RMI) is launching its new GreenTech Series, a monthly outreach series to showcase the latest energy efficiency technologies and processes from Maryland manufacturers.

The series will kick off with Matt Turpin, president of Maryland manufacturing organization Zentech Manufacturing, and each month will feature a different manufacturing leader who discusses best practices, innovative process, expansion of product lines, cutting costs and more.

“We couldn’t think of a better leader to highlight our GreenTech Series kick-off than Matt Turpin. Beyond serving as the president of the largest electronics contract manufacturer in Maryland, his firm has invented an new LED lighting system which could have great value Maryland manufacturers,” said Mike Galiazzo, president of RMI. “The GreenTech Series is a manufacturers-only, after-hours social that will benefit manufacturers by showcasing outstanding Maryland energy efficient products and processes that can improve their bottom line.”

In addition to a keynote speech and great networking opportunities, attendees at the Aug. 19 event will receive a special update on "Maryland Manufacturing Today" by RMI, Manufacturing Extension Partnership, and Maryland’s Department of Business & Economic Development representatives. While the event is free and available only to manufacturers, attendees must register at

“The potential for these monthly meetings hosted by RMI is very exciting,” Galiazzo said. “Attendees will become equipped to tell others about all of the innovation in the state’s manufacturing. We have the opportunity to help these manufacturers learn new about new energy saving products and processes that can provide substantial savings.”

Upcoming featured company executives for the GreenTech Series include General Motors Baltimore Operations’ plant manager, Bill Tiger on Sept. 30, and Mark Rice, president of Maritime Applied Physics Corporation on Oct. 28.
