CEO Alan Ortner to attend NTMA Engage Summit East in June after receiving the 2021 Safety Award

Alan Ortner attended the NTMA Engage Summit West in Costa Mesa, CA March 21-23. The short, but packed schedule included an opening address by keynote speaker Michael Guckes, Chief Economist for Gardner Intelligence. Based on data from Gardner’s proprietary Business Index and macroeconomic research, Guckes provided attendees with a clear picture of today’s metalworking manufacturing landscape.

Attendees had the opportunity to tour one of two local NTMA Member companies, Mosey’s Production Machinists and Ricaurte Precision. The summit included an interesting roundtable session lead by Caitlin Sickles of Bracewell Policy Resolution Group and casual evening networking events.

Alan has announced plans to also attend the NTMA Engage Summit East in Philadelphia, PA June 6-8. The event will be similar to the NTMA Engage Summit West, but will feature different keynote speakers and breakout sessions. Full details will be announced soon.

“When we’re all so busy it’s great to have events that only take you out of the shop for two days.” Register now so you don’t miss out on this worthwhile event.

In April this year, the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) notified Sirois Tool that it was awarded a 2021 NTMA Safety Award. Eligibility for this annual award is determined by the workplace illnesses, injuries, and deaths as recorded on each company’s OSHA Form 300A for the previous year. Companies who receive this award are among the safest in the industry. In 2018, Sirois Tool was the only Connecticut company to receive this recognition.

Sirois Tool has long history of active participation with the NTMA and similar organizations that support the manufacturing industry. Sirois Tool is a member of the NTMA and the Connecticut Tooling and Machining Association (CTMA). The CTMA, a founding chapter of the NTMA, was formed with a focus on workforce development and government relations. The organizations work with the local, state and federal governments to represent the tooling and machining industry.
