HARTFORD-The annual Aerospace Alley trade show will take place Nov. 8 at the Connecticut Convention Center.

The event provides a venue for original-equipment companies to meet members of the Aerospace Component Manufacturers.

One hundred top aerospace suppliers will be exhibiting their services.

“Our area is known around the world for turbine engines and helicopters,” said Max McIntyre, president of the Aerospace Component Manufacturers and vice president of New England Airfoil Products.

“What makes Aerospace Alley truly special is the unique concentration of companies manufacturing the parts and components, along with their special process suppliers, that make the airplanes, helicopters and spacecraft fly. We’re also densely concentrated with highly productive, high-tech workers and focused on ongoing collaboration and innovation.”

ACM is a nonprofit regional network of independent Connecticut and southwestern Massachusetts-based aerospace companies.

Its mission is to attract the global aerospace industry to its industrial cooperative of long-established aerospace manufacturers, processors and suppliers offering a cost-effective supply chain that exceeds customer expectations.

By working together as a network, member companies collectively offer broader capabilities than they could as individuals.
