PACE advises several multinational clients with bases of manufacturing operations here and around the world on strategy and compliance issues. Through strategic alliances with national organizations, PACE brings experience and contacts to assist companies in pursuing opportunities.
Advanced Manufacturing and Technology
With limited federal funding for the foreseeable future, there is a growing opportunity to leverage capital though public-private partnerships with local, state and federal governments.

This includes early procurement by federal agencies of cutting-edge products. PACE tracks these opportunities closely for our clients, and can identify available resources for your company or organization.
