HANGZ / Hangzhou China
Rising labor costs and shifting consumer demands are causing Hangzhou manufacturers to reevaluate their current manufacturing practices. As part of China’s push for internalization of automation, Greentech Investments wants to invest in the development of Chinese manufacturing. We explored automation implementation methods and workforce changes using surveying, interviewing, and field studies of manufacturers to assess current transition obstacles. We found that unskilled labor shortages are limiting manufacturing growth and developed a guide for industry automation adoption to combat this deficiency.
