MoveSmart/StayLean
Facility expansion or relocation is a very expensive, capital intensive project. It must be planned and executed carefully to reduce business disruption and achieve a successful outcome. Even firms that are not expanding or relocating can benefit from plant layout services to utilize their existing space more efficiently. The Industrial & Technology Assistance Corp. (ITAC) team can assist the firm to prioritize their space requirements over the next five years, plan their relocation and lay out their new facility.  For more information please contact Veronica Price, Communications Manager at 212-442-2990.
