Congratulations to Lynette Nadeau former NESMA President and recipient of the 2021 Women of Excellence in Metal Forming & Fabricating.

“Succeeding in a male-dominated sector has its challenges, but having a strong team at work and at home certainly has helped me turn those events into opportunity. I am fortunate that those around me recognized hard work, persistence and dedication. I find that there is no substitution for being prepared—to succeed you must understand the organization and your role in that organization. I strongly encourage anyone interested in a career in manufacturing to visit manufacturing organizations’ websites, talk to education counselors or contact a local manufacturer to see what the industry is all about. We need more people in our field, especially women.”

Lynette Nadeau, President, Southington Tool & Mfg. Corp., Plantsville, CT
