Earlier this week, our company was represented at Connecticut Business Day, hosted by the Connecticut Business & Industry Association. Business leaders from a wide range of industries met at the State Legislative Office Building in Hartford to speak out on business issues.
The group heard from Governor Dannel Malloy, who’s administration is faced with a challenging budget environment. Horst Engineering supports the CBIA’s efforts to make Connecticut a more competitive and welcoming business environment.
Our business is a long time member of CBIA, who in their own words are “…fighting to make Connecticut a top state for business, jobs, and economic growth. A better business climate means a brighter future for everyone.”
Our company is also a member of the National Association of Manufacturers, a national organization dedicated to manufacturing advocacy. 2016 is a national election year, and it is important that our employees play a simple role, and vote. NAM has reported that in recent polls, 17% of all manufacturing employees didn’t hear from their employers in the last election cycle.
We encourage our employees to consider the economy, manufacturing related issues, and jobs growth and vote in local, state, and national elections.
