WorkinCT #CTConfident: Push for new talent in advanced manufacturing
(Fox 61 News, 9/18/18)
Shawn Dow is fairly new to Phoenix Manufacturing in Enfield. “I was an auto mechanic before. There’s only so much you can do in the auto field without owning your own business, and here you can really expand your knowledge and abilities to do different things,” said Shawn Dow, who is a milling machinist.
He got on-the-job training working with his fellow machinists to learn how to make the complex aerospace components Phoenix Manufacturing puts out for military and commercial aircraft. “There will always be work in manufacturing,” said Dow.
