Tomlinson Manufacturing is a small, family-owned manufacturing company located in the Circle City Industrial Complex, a large legacy industrial building in the Mass Ave Industrial Corridor northeast of downtown Indianapolis. Tomlinson aligns with and works with a group of other small manufacturers, woodshops and fabricators in this Corridor and are advocates for the revitalization of the area. On Oct. 7 from 12pm-2pm, local community leaders, educators, workforce development practitioners and other small businesses gathered to discuss the importance of small manufacturing in the community and share resources.
A representative from Senator Joe Donnelly' Office shared a Manufacturing Day Proclamation and the Deputy District Director of the Indiana Small Business Administration shared information on how the SBA supports manufacturers in the state. Impressive Prototypes, another local company, and Purdue Industrial Design alumni set up 3D printing displays as well.
