2012 ACM Workforce Development Fair & Trade Show

This week, members of our team at Horst Engineering participated in the 2012 ACM Workforce Development Fair & Trade Show. On Wednesday morning, 53 of the 79 members of the Aerospace Components Manufacturers cluster came together to host more than 600 students and educators. The students came from many of the state’s middle schools, high schools, and technical schools.

Our sales and human resource folks shared Horst Engineering’s enthusiasm for high precision manufacturing with this younger generation of future workers. These children are a key to the sustainability of our manufacturing economy. Technical manufacturing and engineering careers present huge opportunities and Connecticut is chock full of companies that need stronger candidates in the worker pipeline.

The afternoon session featured networking with other members of the ACM and customers visits. Many ACM companies rely on each other and millions of dollars are sourced between companies who trade products and services. Connecticut and Massachusetts are home to the strongest aerospace manufacturing clusters in the world. Our “Aerospace Alley” is unmatched. Virtually every process required can be obtained because the knowledge base is so deep.

October is Manufacturing Month in Connecticut and our sector contributes 11% to the state economy. Nationally, the aerospace industry is the largest net exporter. The buzz at the trade show was strong and it is good to see high precision manufacturing on the rise again.

Fantastic run and bike involving an end-to-end trip on the @ctforestandparkassociation #quinnipiactrail with @trailrunningmom We visited a bunch of conserved forest land including #sleepinggiantstatepark and we rode the Farmington Canal rail trail. #shenipsitstriders @horstcycling #teamhorstsports #trailrunning #cycling 🏃🏽‍♀️ 🚴🏽
‪Over the last 10 weeks, I filled my Subaru’s gas tank four times. In the prior 10 weeks, I filled it 13 times. I’ve gone to work every day @horsteng but my other travel stopped. Both the pandemic and my cycling have been major factors. #carfreecommute #cycling #sevencycles ‬#teamhorstsports #horstengineering #bicycle
Friday evening date with @trailrunningmom 💕 🚴🏽 #teamhorstsports #cycling
A good day on the #nipmucktrail with @trailrunningmom We went End-To-End from the southern terminus of the East Branch to the northern terminus at the MA border. #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #trailrunning 🏃🏽‍♀️
The weather during this week’s rides (and run) has been absolutely frightful. The pictures show the various “calms” before and after the various storms. My timing has been good. #carfreecommute #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🌍 🚴🏽🏃🏿
