CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Bob Hersh, Grant Thornton’s national managing principal of the manufacturing industry and practice leader for the Metro New York and New England areas. 

Grant Thornton is hosting an Aug. 26 conference on how the industry is adapting to working through and beyond the pandemic.

 Hersh says COVID-19 disruptions hit manufacturers extremely hard, with most unable to shut down as they were making essential products. 

He noted that the pandemic created significant supply chain issues, although advances in e-manufacturing could help resolve those.

“I have a couple clients that are dealing with 3D printing in the industrial space, CNC, a lot of things where the design is driven electronically,” he said.

Hersh added that digital technologies provide companies with a blueprint to generate inventory and help relieve supply chain bottlenecks in the supply chain.
