Vermont Delegation Attends Aerospace Components Manufacturing Tradeshow

In partnership with the Vermont Agency of Commerce, the Vermont Chamber led a delegation of Vermont manufacturers at the recent Aerospace Components Manufacturers (ACM) event in Hartford, CT. This participation was in support of the expansion of the Vermont – Québec Aerospace Trade Corridor into Connecticut. The corridor connects Vermont’s combined $2 billion aerospace and aviation industry with an $18 billion Québec aerospace cluster.

Vermont’s delegates included Concepts NREC, Manufacturing Solutions Inc., and Stephens Precision, who met with Connecticut aerospace and defense suppliers to discuss workforce and new business development opportunities. The delegates also met with many of the 1,200 students who were engaged with the Job Fair component of the event.

As a Trade Corridor partner, ACM suppliers were able to participate in the recent virtual 2022 Manufacturing Summit, where they secured NDAs and approved supplier status with OEMs and primes, including Bell Flight, Lockheed Martin, and SAFRAN.
