The Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center (DVIRC) is a regional economic development organization with a public purpose – to support the profitable growth of small and mid-sized U.S. manufacturers.



The 2019 Summit celebrates the region’s rich heritage of manufacturing leadership and innovation in the world. We are proud of our past, and dedicated to regaining this global reputation. The Summit provides a unique opportunity for attendees to establish new relationships, gain new opportunities, and learn and share best practices.

The world is being driven by the exponential growth of technological advances. At the core of these disruptions, you will find manufacturing. We believe DVIRC’s vision can become a reality due to our incredible ecosystem of manufacturers, educational institutions, designers, hardware entrepreneurs, technology integrators, community leaders, and public representatives. Together we can make Philadelphia the greatest manufacturing city in the world, again; while growing a vibrant economy that everyone benefits from.
