Horst Engineering will have a seat at the advisory board table as Goodwin College launches their Manufacturing Initiative. Goodwin is an excellent neighbor in our East Hartford, Connecticut community; and they have been successful at shaking up the traditional education model in several sectors. We are excited that they are now turning their focus to the manufacturing industries.
Workforce development and manufacturing skills training are critical needs, particularly in our home state of Connecticut. We have developed internal training tools at both our Connecticut operations and our Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico operations. However, we would be thrilled to know that there was actually a pool of trained workers in our communities that we could recruit from.
Horst Engineering will offer support to Goodwin’s initiative as they strive to restore strength to Connecticut’s vital manufacturing base.
