Join ASPE’s Phoenix Chapter and Watts Water for a Discussion on Responsible Manufacturing

During its technical meeting at 11:30 a.m. on April 19, ASPE’s Phoenix Chapter will host Robert J. Pagano Jr., CEO of Watts Water, who will discuss “Manufacturing, Serving the Industry and Industry Professionals,” and all ASPE members are invited to participate via Zoom. You can register for this free opportunity at the Phoenix Chapter’s website.

This session will look at ways that manufacturers serve, support, and employ a multitude of industry professionals, respond to a constantly evolving and dynamic marketplace, and address social issues both within and beyond our own borders.

A multitude of goods and services are available on the market today, and Bob will discuss what it means to be an integral part of the industry and to develop, manufacture, and respond to client needs. Responsible manufacturing means to operate in a manner that is socially, ethically, and globally responsible for the betterment of not only customers, but also to the communities they serve. Manufacturers employ a wide variety of professionals, and there are opportunities beyond those commonly discussed in trade associations. When emphasis is placed not only on productivity, but also on cultivating a culture of philanthropy, compassion, and ethical behavior, that sets the stage for greatness and makes a company more than a provider of goods, but a true industry partner.
