Did you know that Arizona is Top 5 in the Nation for Space and Defense Manufacturing, according to the Arizona Commerce Authority? Dedicated to growing and strengthening the local economy, the ACA is Arizona's leading economic development organization. In addition, Arizona is home to RevAZ. Part of the ACA, this program supports the growth and success of manufacturers in the state.

TruPath joins manufacturers operating in Arizona to celebrate the 5th Annual Arizona Manufacturers Month.

Manufacturing Day

On Friday, October 6th, TruPath attended Mesa Community College's Manufacturing Day. We toured the Advanced Manufacturing Labs and explored the programs Arizona Advanced Manufacturing Institute (AzAMI) had to offer.

Occurring on the first Friday in October, Manufacturing Day is a celebration meant to inspire the next generation. However, several other manufacturing events occur in the state throughout the month.

Arizona Manufacturers MonthDuring our visit, we met Joseph Martinez, Mesa Community College's Program Director of Manufacturing, Applied Sciences, and Technology. His experience and passion for the industry are truly inspiring. Because of this, he continues to encourage Mesa Community College to adapt to industry needs. In his "classroom" students learn skills hands-on. According to Joseph, his students have seen tremendous success in finding manufacturing opportunities in Arizona.
