“Employees who have participated in training (supported by the partnership) have increased job satisfaction, increased motivation and increased efficiencies in processes, resulting in financial gain for the employee and the company. It (the training) has also allowed employees to advance to other career opportunities within the company such as CNC, milling and punching work.”

– Frank Cettina, Vice President of Operations, Computer Components Corporation & SEPMA Co-Chair

“I joined the Partnership because I was expecting it to fund training for my company. I have found the Partnership to be an excellent place for networking on various business issues. There is great collaboration among the participants like sharing resumes when there is a major layoff. The life of the Partnership depends upon its manufacturing members and the quality and frequency of their participation.”

– Victoria Myers, Director of Administration, Piasecki Aircraft Corporation & Former SEPMA Co-Chair

“The Partnership has provided an opportunity to have discussions with small family owned businesses or employees who work for small family owned businesses. It has created business opportunities and has allowed us to be comfortable with having casual business discussions with other manufacturing colleagues as opposed to making cold calls.”

– Karla Trotman, Executive Vice President, Electro Soft & SEPMA Co-Chair

“The partnership allowed us to be more proactive. It brings people around the table with a manufacturing background. Some of them have been implementing these best practices. Being at the table, we all can share in that knowledge and grow from it.”

– Janice Gerold, HR Senior Manager, Leonardo, formerly Agusta Westland Helicopters
