Gilroy Will Discuss New Opportunities for the American Manufacturing Industry

Event to Take Place in April 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA

CLEVELAND, Jan. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manufacturing & Technology 2019, an IndustryWeek event, today announced Titan Gilroy—CEO of Titans of CNC and star of manufacturing-based reality series of the same name—will present the keynote address on April 3 that will focus on uplifting the skilled trades in America.

Once a heavyweight boxing prodigy Gilroy experienced several setbacks and a stint in prison before finding his true calling as renegade CNC machinist and redefining the industry's expectations in the process. Known for not pulling punches when it comes to the hard truths manufacturers must face in an ever-changing landscape, Gilroy has gathered legions of followers devoted to his aggressive style of machining and tenacious belief in second chances and American manufacturing.

Combining his experiences as a machinist, as a manufacturing CEO, as an educator, and as an industry advocate, Gilroy's keynote will discuss manufacturing’s new opportunity for greatness and how to get there.

“Titan epitomizes the toughness and grit passed down by generations of factory and machine shop workers who have kept America going. His determination to help the next-generation of machinists, whether they are in an underfunded high school, the prison system, or somewhere in between, is truly inspiring," said John Hitch, expo director for Manufacturing & Technology 2019. "We look forward to him amazing our audience next spring with his personal story, his insights into the manufacturing industry, and most importantly, what steps we need to take to become even better.”

Manufacturing & Technology 2019 will take place April 1-3, 2019 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
