PartnerTech Inc. President and Managing Director of the North American location, Gary Bruce, was part of a panel discussion on handling IP and exclusivity for collaborative innovation at the Innovation Symposium hosted by Novelis and sponsored in part by Georgia Tech Manufacturing Extension Partnership and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.
As a technology driven organization, PartnerTech has significant expertise helping companies take innovative ideas from prototype to scalable model as demonstrated with recent client, Impact Cryotherapy. The success of this partnership is attributed in part to the collaboration from different engineering disciplines, a Made In America solution and sound communication that resulted in the final scalable model used today. PartnerTech continues in partnership with Impact Cryotherapy making continuous improvements in process and as an asset to their marketing initiatives.
The Innovation Symposium is designed to help companies learn from experts in a variety of areas that will accelerate the path from idea to reality. It provides a half- day packed with resources and information from two panel discussions, opening and closing keynotes, a tour of the Novelis Global Research and Development Center, and concludes with an open Q&A session. Attendees will gain insight and learn best practices from manufacturing professionals to prioritize and organize innovation efforts.
Heading up North American operations since 2009, Bruce has led the business through significant growth, over more than 600%. He speaks on a number of topics, including Postponement Manufacturing and International Business and Culture. Additionally, Bruce has been invited to participate in panel discussions on global communications and serves as Co-Chair on the Metro Atlanta Chamber Supply Chain Council.
Bruce states, “The Innovation Symposium is a great opportunity for businesses to learn from the experience of others.
