The Joint Systems Manufacturing Center (JSMC) is the only US Government owned facility in the United States with the infrastructure to fabricate, assemble, and test heavy combat vehicles. The facility’s wide range of capabilities set the stage for a process of complete vertical integration. The Allen County Board of Commissioners received a planning grant from the Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment to support economic and workforce planning, industry realignment and supply chain analysis. Future iQ were contracted in 2015, to lead the implementation of Phase One of this project. In 2016, Future iQ were again contracted to lead the second phase of this planning project. This second phase has involved developing an executable Collaborative Growth plan, in order to strengthen the existing eco system related to the JSMC, the supply chain and other aspects of the Greater Lima Regional Economy.
