On May 7th, 2021, Futuramic was honored to host U.S. Representative Jack Bergman for a facilities tour and discussion about aerospace manufacturing and the importance of small businesses to the American economy.
Congressman Bergman met with Futuramic’s Vice President John Couch and Ashley Flinn to see up close the advanced engineering and manufacturing operations at Futuramic’s Warren headquarters. Throughout the tour Futuramic shared its involvement in the local community, the space program, and demonstrated the importance of it’s skilled workforce. Congressman Bergman was able to learn more about Futuramic’s transition into aerospace, and discuss opportunities for high school and college graduates to get involved in aerospace manufacturing. A keen interest was shared with congressman Bergman about how small businesses are providing high paying Michigan jobs, helping build a space economy, and returning American astronauts to the moon.
Thank you congressman Bergman, it was a pleasure having you stop by.
