Futuramic was honored to host Senator Bill Nelson for a facilities tour and discussion on manufacturing and space exploration on Monday, November 13.
Senator Nelson met with Futuramic’s President Mark Jurcak, Vice President John Couch and Sales Manager Rob Flinn to see the advanced manufacturing operations at Futuramic’s Detroit campus and learn more about Futuramic’s involvement in the space program. Afterwards, Seator Nelson was kind enough to stay on to discuss the importance of a skilled workforce, company initiatives, the space program, and the mission to Mars. The conversation ended with some fascinating insights into his 1986 space flight, the great space race, and NASA history.
Senator Nelson was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000, currently serves on four committees, and is the ranking member of the Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation.
