The Path To Global Competitiveness

Since 1984 BobCAD-CAM has assisted thousands of US manufacturing businesses to strengthen their ability to remain competitive in their markets. In keeping true to tradition BobCAD-CAM decided to launch the latest Participation Grant as a great new solution for North American manufacturers to use in order to stay strong and competitive in what they do.

BobCAD-CAM Participation Grants provide up to 50% of costs on projects geared at improving the companies competitiveness, in return enabling them to make improvements faster and more aggressively than they could on their own. This grant program offers an effective tool to assist local companies adversely affected by foreign trade.
The BobCAD-CAM Grant Program can assist in a variety of ways such as:

  • ISO/QS 9000 Preparation & Registration
  • Employee Development Training
  • LEAN Manufacturing
  • CAD/CAM Selection & Implementation
  • ERP Implementation
  • Custom Posts for CNC Machines
  • Custom Scripting Services
  • Product development, Design & Testing
  • Debt Reconstruction

How the Program Works

We are not consultants and we have nothing to sell you on the program. The grant program in conjunction with MATAAC (MidAtlantic Trade Adjustment Assistance Center) will simply match your payments to outside, third party experts so that you can improve your competitiveness right now. TAAF (Trade Adjustment Assistance for Firms) partners with a company by offering 50/50 cost sharing of projects aimed at improving the firms competitiveness. Specifically, the funds are applied toward the fees of consultants, engineers or other outside professional service providers. If you need a partner with the power to assist in your competitive turn around, please contact us today! There is absolutely NO cost to apply for this new program. All you need to do is apply!
