Providing the perfect blend of classroom training and practical application via simulation

MRC’s Manager Essentials delivers a leadership learning experience for mid-level managers unlike any other. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of their own management style and how it impacts their ability to communicate, delegate, and lead others using the Everything DiSC® Management Profile.  During hands-on practice sessions in a simulated manufacturing environment, learners will be provided the opportunity to lead teams through challenges such as production delays, material shortages, quality issues, performance problems, and departmental conflicts. 

By learning how to adapt to the needs of those they both manage and report to, these important leaders will return to their organizations well-equipped to effect positive change.

Training and Certifications

MRC provides far more than certifications and funding assistance. We offer job creators access to specialized coaching, mentorship and a variety of business and marketing assistance normally outside the reach of most manufacturers.


No matter what’s happening with your business, MRC has probably seen it. We know the problems that keep CEOs up at night, and we know how to help solve them. Our staff has more than 100 years of combined experience working side-by-side with business owners to evaluate, strategize, discover and implement solutions that address both strategic growth needs and organizational transformation.

Training & Events Calendar

MRC breaks down the barriers that prohibit manufacturers from realizing their full potential. Our proven tactics and methods can help nearly any company at nearly any stage of its evolution. Whatever the hurdle – going green, becoming lean, entering new markets, rebranding the company – MRC can help you clear it.

Workforce Initiatives

Developing Future Workforce with programs like: What’s So Cool About Manufacturing®, PA Dream Team, the Inside Manufacturing Series, and Manufacturing Day.


Through our partnerships, we are able to bring the horsepower of the best-in-breed experts to you. Imagine having access to the second-largest technology institute in the world, a corps of ex-Toyota executives trained under the best Lean practitioners in the world or world-renowned business strategy groups. MRC makes it possible.
