Top Management Event Demonstrates Collaborative Efforts Supporting Growth of Connecticut Manufacturers

APICS Hartford County Chapter hosted a breakfast on Friday, March 4, 2016 for their Top Management Advisory Council (TMAC) members. The turnout and level of engagement for the event demonstrated that manufacturing is alive and well in Connecticut.

Participating Connecticut Manufacturers included S&S Worldwide, Linemaster Switch Corporation, Jacobs Vehicle Systems, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Albert Brothers Inc, Unicorr Packaging Group, Tighitco Aerospace, Gerber Scientific Inc., Colonial Spring Company, Hobson & Motzer, Inc., TLD, and United Technologies.

There was support across the board for the educational and professional development opportunities APICS-Hartford offers operations management, supply chain management, and logistics professionals. Managers requested courses and instruction to advance their workforce on such topics as Continuous Improvement and Lean Practices, Change Management, and Supervisory / Leadership Training. Additionally, numerous managers stepped forward to serve as APICS-Hartford Board Members and Company Coordinators.

"The TMAC event is a cornerstone event for our Chapter. It not only allows us to gauge the pulse of our membership, but lets us make sure we continue our history of being a value partner to the companies that support us,” said Dan Levine, President of APICS Hartford County Chapter #6, Inc. “Manufacturing is a lifeblood sector for the state economy, and many great companies were represented at our event. This continues to show that manufacturing is still important to the state’s future and is looking to grow, develop, network, and learn. We are excited to implement the feedback we received to help Connecticut manufacturers develop the talent and skills they need to succeed."
