1. EDC to Present Specialized Manufacturing Event

    The EDC is pleased to announce that we will host the second event in our Growth Sector series, “Understanding
    the Supply Chain in Specialty Manufacturing”. The series is presented by First
    Niagara Bank. We appreciate the collaboration of the Connecticut and Western
    Mass chapters of the National Tooling and Machining Association. Here is a link
    to the invitation -- http://www.westernmassedc.com/manufacturing2012/

    This event will be held at the Robert E. Morris Company of Windsor CT, which is presenting our keynote
    speaker, Kym Nelson, Principal of KLEW Company. Kym is a nationally recognized supply
    chain consultant and previously managed the global supply chain for Proctor
    & Gamble. She will explain what large global OEM’s are looking for from
    their supply chain partners. A secondary theme of the event will be the shared
    labor market and supply chain relationships within the Knowledge Corridor. Douglas
    Fisher, Manager of Economic Development for Northeast Utilities, and Chair of
    the Hartford-Springfield Economic Partnership, will moderate an industry panel
    of Knowledge Corridor manufacturers. The event is free, but registration is
    required. Please RSVP to Karen Tetreault at k.tetreault@westernmassedc.com or
    (413) 233-9851.

    There will be a showcase and networking reception following our panel. Anyone who attends
    the conference is welcome to attend the showcase. However there is a fee if you
    want to exhibit at the showcase. Please contact Daryl Ott at dott@ct-ntma.org or (860) 604-3375 if you
