CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Business operators from all around the country are in the Canfield area this week, discussing ways to expand additive manufacturing.

Executives with America Makes are hosting their 11th annual “Members Meeting & Exchange” conference at Waypoint 4180.

The event will feature discussions on various aspects of new technologies in the fields of energy and defense and how businesses can utilize those in their own operations.
