Last week the Aerospace Components Manufacturers (ACM) celebrated our 20th anniversary. The HORST Engineering Family of Companies is a long time member. The event was held in conjunction with the grand opening of the Asnuntuck Community College Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center in Enfield, Connecticut.
ACM and Asnuntuck are longtime partners. We have several Asnuntuck graduates in our factories and we continue to collaborate with them on recruiting the next generation of workers with manufacturing skills.
Asnuntuck has been a leader in the Connecticut community college system and the other sites are modeling their program after the one in Enfield. The new classrooms and lab are a fantastic learning environment.
ACM made a large donation to augment the funding of the technology center and it was named in honor of our industry cluster. We look forward to future collaboration with Asnuntuck and their community college partners as the entire aerospace manufacturing industry looks to grow with their support.
