As part of NESMA involvement with the Connecticut Manufacturing Day, Brendan Schuch from Acme Monaco and Kristina Fischer from Gibbs Wire and Steel both gave presentations at middle schools in Bristol.
Brendan presented to Mr. Rocco Martino’s 6th grade class at West Bristol Middle School. He shared some of the components that Acme Monaco manufactures. Components ranging from items used in everyday life that students recognized, to life saving medical wires that most have never seen. Brendan also enlightened the students as to how clean the manufacturing working environment is at his company.
Kristina presented to Mr. McConnell 8th and 7th grade classes at Chippens Hill Middle School. Kristina shared her story of how she became interested in working in the manufacturing industry. She has taken classes and become a valuable employee after only a few short years of employment. She also shared components where the base material is manufactured at Gibbs Wire.
Both Brendan and Kristina are part of NESMA’s Vanguard committee. This committee is comprised of young professionals in their 20’s and early 30’s, who have demonstrated leadership skills in the manufacturing industry.
