The Vermont Chamber of Commerce has secured more than 10 of the largest aerospace and defense companies to participate in Manufactured in Vermont Supply Chain Trade Show on Wednesday, September 27. These companies will land in Vermont searching for potential companies to expand their supply chain, creating more opportunities for their companies and economic growth for Vermont businesses.
Airbus Americas, Boeing, Defense Logistics Agency – Troop Support, General Dynamics Bath Iron Works, General Dynamics Electric Boat, Kaman Aerospace, Sikorsky, A Lockheed Martin Company, Oshkosh Defense, the Naval Undersea Warfare Center and Raytheon top the list of out-of-state original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) looking to engage Vermont and New England's proven base of pre-qualified suppliers to optimize their supply chains with new innovations, products and services for competitive advantage.
Adding to the depth of suppliers, the Vermont Chamber will also bring 24 Canadian companies to Manufactured in Vermont to support the continuing work to build a U.S. - Canadian aerospace corridor, linking Vermont's $2 billion aerospace and aviation cluster with a $28 billion Canadian aerospace industry for cross-border commerce. This is part of the ongoing work between the Vermont Chamber and AeroMontreal stemming from an agreement in 2013.
Manufactured in Vermont attracts exhibitors and attendees from the entire Northeast region and lower Québec. Attendees will network with industry peers, meet buyers, suppliers and partners on the trade show floor, connect with employers, attend industry workshops, see new product innovations and experience dynamic exhibits.
