EVTV, the Stamford, CT-based video and communications firm, is joining several other leading service firms to "Celebrate Connecticut Manufacturing", an initiative designed to draw attention to and honor Connecticut-based manufacturers throughout the state.
Greyson Schwing, President of Milford, CT-based Antelope Web, spearheaded the initiative which includes EVTV, TD Bank, NSI Network Solutions, Tricom Systems and several other CT-based service firms. Through "Celebration of Connecticut Manufacturing", profiles for a hardcover book, additional web video content and other tools will be produced free-of-charge for the manufacturers promotional use. The first edition book will feature 50 companies, debuted and distributed following an honorary luncheon this summer.
"We need to draw attention to the continuing vibrancy and importance of manufacturing here in Connecticut", states EVTV president Michael Macari. "Over 250,000 people are employed in manufacturing in the state, nearly 10% of Connecticut's workforce".
"Large and small, manufacturing businesses have played no small role in our great state's history of being a leader nationwide in business and industry", states Greyson. "Many great companies make up this rich tapestry which is American manufacturing".
Companies interested in the book, or being a part of the initiative's planned Volume II, are encouraged to email Macari at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Schwing at email@example.com.
