And we’re leveraging our collective expertise in digital transformation and smart manufacturing to support advanced manufacturing and logistics (AML) efforts throughout our state.

Driving the Conversation

We recognized that our industries all have common infrastructures, supply chains, and labor pools—and that sharing insight about these topics can make us all stronger. We empower a community of Indiana leaders in advanced manufacturing and logistics—as well as in academia, community, and government—to ask questions, give answers, and learn from experts.

Conexus is making opportunities and moving Indiana.
