Career Academy Students Tour Local Manufacturer

A number of quality manufacturing training programs for machining and electronics are available in our area and graduates are being interviewed and hired; but the demand remains high. In order to help meet this demand, on November 10th, GLWDB and NAMC staff accompanied students and staff from the Lowell Career Academy on a tour of Excell Solutions in Billerica. Greg Lennartz of Excell, a member of the GLWDB, provided the students with a look at all aspects of his company operations from machining and sheet metal fabrication to computer-aided design and quality control. The students were very interested and engaged in Greg’s presentation.
