Grow Your Business by Expanding Your Supply Chain
Are you looking for customers? Are you looking for suppliers?

HVTDCs Business Development Program is your app for that! The Hudson Valley Technology Development Center is expanding its supply chain practice to provide the regions' manufacturers with access to top-of-the-line products and services. Since there are two sides to every deal, HVTDC can also help your company find customers for your products and services.

Let's sit down together and explore how we can continue to build a viable, profitable, expanding Hudson Valley and New York State supply chain.

We currently are seeking participants to propose to the consortia looking to build up to two casinos in the Hudson Valley. Casino-resort complexes are in reality small cities and probably need whatever product your company manufacturers, from food to bricks to lights; give us a call!
HVTDC Expands Supply Chain Services Through Collaboration of Multiple Centers
The Hudson Valley Technology Development Center (HVTDC), Mohawk Valley Applied Technology Corporation (MVATC), and the Center for Economic Growth (CEG) have teamed up to provide support for New York State manufacturers. The combined skills and knowledge of experts from the Manufacturing Extension Partnerships (MEPs) afford a more expansive and diverse array of consulting services for businesses in all three regions.
