This week, the Horst Engineering Family of Companies participated in the 1st Aerospace & Defense International Trade Summit in Groton, Connecticut. The summit was sponsored by one of our industry organizations, the Aerospace Components Manufacturers.
Scott Bowtruczyk, one of our Sales & Customer Service Account Managers, said that the summit was well attended by leading OEM customers, suppliers, export officials, and political leaders. The aerospace manufacturing industry is facing an unprecedented ramp up in production as the entire manufacturing economy is lifted. Aerospace is a truly global industry and Connecticut has been a long time leader.
The ecosystem of supply chain partners throughout Connecticut and the rest of southern New England are unparalleled anywhere in the world.
