  • Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

    GENEDGE Offers Best-in-Class Services for Virginia's Manufacturers

You also can tap into our national network of more than 1,400 manufacturing experts through our partnership with the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Program (MEP).

    Ransomware, hacking, phishing, viruses—it only takes one to bring down your network and expose proprietary and confidential information. Using a risk management framework, GENEDGE can help assess your company’s risks and develop a plan to protect your critical information. We also can help you comply with specific cybersecurity requirements like the Dept. of Defense DFARS 7012 requirement to meet the NIST 800-171r1 guidelines to protect Classified Uncontrolled Information (CUI).

  • Product & Process Development

    Engineering support and technical resources to turn concepts into reality
    Turning a great idea into a great product takes skill and experience. GENEDGE can support your projects with engineers and experts in materials science, process design, equipment manufacturing, as well as thousands of other professionals through our national network. Whether it’s specifying materials for a new camshaft or the creating a new machine to set carbon-fiber composites, our engineers can add depth and breadth to your team when you need it most. 
  • Strategic Business Management

    Managing a business goes beyond the R&E report and the balance sheet
    At the highest level, companies need strategic direction. They need to understand how to compete in an ever-changing marketplace, how to find and capitalize on new business opportunities before their competition, and how to do all this in a cost-effective way. GENEDGE helps companies plan their futures strategically so that they understand where to invest their time, energy, and scarce resources.
