The Innovation Network for Manufacturers, powered by The El Paso Chamber, the UTEP Aerospace Center, W.M. Keck Center for 3D Innovation, The City of El Paso and the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NDCMM), hosted its first-ever Aerospace and Defense Supplier Summit on May 4-5, 2022. This summit allowed local manufacturers to network with representatives from large scale companies such as Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, Sandia National Laboratories, and Bell Flight. This partnership brings us one step closer towards growing our local manufactures in the aerospace and defense industries.
Bringing in high-tech jobs helps with some of our El Paso modernization initiatives. This can bring large economic growth, increasing the capabilities in local manufactures and bringing more high wage jobs in El Paso. Alongside these efforts, we are certain this will continue to improve our region’s global competitiveness in the manufacturing market towards the near future and partner with more local manufacturers at the chamber. We would like to thank our Title Sponsor, the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NDCMM), for supporting this event!
