State of Manufacturing in Connecticut

New England has the potential to create as many as 8,500 new advanced manufacturing career opportunities annually. Connecticut leads the way with more than 30% of New England’s advanced manufacturing careers. It is likely that Connecticut could be the beneficiary of more than 2,500 new career opportunities annually for the foreseeable future. Additionally, thousands in the current workforce are scheduled to retire in the next few years, leaving a void that must be filled by thousands of career seekers. To achieve the end objective of providing thousands of additional advanced manufacturing positions annually for the next decade and beyond, the AMTC has made a commitment to manufacturing technology education. The AMTC is the major provider of skilled women and men seeking career employment in advanced manufacturing.
