FARMINGTON — U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, told workers at Turbine Technologies Thursday that businesses should work with schools to provide the kind of education that will train the next generation of manufacturing workers.
Turbine Technologies, on Hyde Road, specializes in building turbine components for aircraft and power generation.
William Murphy, a Turbine Technologies employee, said the future of Connecticut manufacturing relies on the students in school today.
Murphy, 57, said he went back to school to learn more about computer software applications, which has helped him at work.
Esty suggested to Tyler Burke, president and CEO, and Max McIntyre, vice president, to seek to pair with middle and high schools and community colleges to give students opportunities to learn about manufacturing and engineering jobs.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
