To commemorate its 100-year anniversary, Bead Electronics has established The Bryant Family Scholarship Fund at Housatonic Community College to benefit its Manufacturing and Engineering programs.
In a recent article in the Connecticut Post, local manufacturers expressed concern over an aging workforce in a vibrant industry for the state. In response, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy stated it necessary for us to continue to encourage students to pursue careers in manufacturing, reminding them that "entry-level jobs in manufacturing often pay more than entry-level positions for those with a four-year college degree".
Manufacturing Day was a big success! Thanks to all who came out to Bead Electronics for the factory tour and presentation.
On Friday, October 4th, we are hosting a factory tour in honor of Manufacturing Day. The tour will involve a walk through of the factory, a visual explanation of our process, and some insight into the electronics components market. Whether you are a student in the engineering field or a seasoned engineer already, this tour is for you!
During the tour, you will learn about our unique swaging process, a metalworking method that is virtually scrapless and can produce precision parts quickly and inexpensively.
