Dave Skaggs, President of MDS, participated in a half day Design Jam at Union Station. The Design Jam brought together approximately 50 students, designers and manufacturers to quickly design and create prototypes of their product ideas.  3D printers, laser cutters and design software were used to quickly prototype new product ideas so they could be shared during the Design Jam and beyond.

Dave liked scouting out new product opportunities but the real benefit of the Design Jam was to meet with industrial product designers, engineers and other manufacturers.

As St. Louis focuses on innovation and start-up opportunities, manufacturing will benefit.  As Dave said “there’s plenty of work here” in St. Louis.
