From Galvin Manufacturing’s founding in 1928 and their car radio that came to be known as Motorola, we can trace a direct path to the current generation of Chicago inventors, makers and risk-takers who are creating products that will change the course of history.
The manufacturing industry has always been at the heart of Chicago’s innovation efforts. It is an industry where smart, hard-working people come together to use machines, tools and human labor to transform raw materials into brilliant and useful new products. It also is an industry of people who know what it means to have the grit, discipline and work ethic to roll up their sleeves and do the heavy lifting.
mHUB exists to ensure that Chicago and our Heartland’s manufacturing industry continues to accelerate, grow and thrive. We are Chicago’s first innovation center focused on physical product development and manufacturing.
