ATLANTA—July 21, 2015—The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG)is pleased to announce that its next monthly field trip will be hosted by PartnerTech in Lawrenceville, GA on July 29, 2015.
President and Managing Director of PartnerTech Inc., Gary Bruce, will provide a presentation for the group followed by a tour of the facility to include the cryogenic chamber being manufactured for one of TAG’s Top 40 Most Innovative Companies; just one of the current projects underway at the North American location.
Gary Bruce states, “We are excited to host the July field trip for TAG, which are both informative and a great opportunity to network and build relationships with other members of TAG. Our tour will allow members a comprehensive view of three current projects showcasing cutting edge technology including the cryogenic chamber we are manufacturing for one of the TAG Top 40 Most Innovative Companies.”
PartnerTech, as a manufacturer of technology driven products, supports TAG’s commitment to economic development of Georgia’s technology industry.

Both projects will be presented as part of the tour as well as a third project involving electromechanical assembly for a variety of products for a multi-national company.
Gary Bruce is an active participant with TAG events and served as a speaker on the panel for the first annual TAG Global Business Collaboration. Bruce recently attended the TechAmerica DC Fly In, a coordinated event created to facilitate communication between representatives in Washington with business leaders and to inform industry leaders on legislation regarding technology. As a part of the panel for the Global Business Collaboration, Bruce provided insight in communicating across cultural boundaries and maintaining productivity in globally diverse organizations.
“The Technology Association of Georgia is an important asset to Georgia’s technology industry. TAG coordinates hundreds of opportunities each year for educational and networking events such as the TechAmerica DC Fly In and the monthly field trips. It is a great organization supporting the economic development of Georgia’s technology industry”, states Bruce.
