The Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing is proud to announce a new alliance that crosses industries and products manufactured.
Via the newly formed, Composites Washington, an alliance formed to develop skilled jobs in the composites industry, the COE will participate in aligning, informing and connecting groups.
According to a press release issued by the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, Mary Kaye Bredeson, executive director of the Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing, said the alliance was formed to fill an urgent need for qualified composite material technicians in an ever-growing number of industries.
“We knew the timing was perfect to establish this group,” she said. “More than 100 Washington companies are already engaged in composites manufacturing, fabrication, repair and advanced materials research and development. We’re working to keep them strong and competitive and attract new industries to our state.”
