M2D2 was pleased to participate when New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan paid a visit to platinum corporate sponsor Omni Components recently.
Omni Components, located in Hudson NH, is a manufacturer of medical devices and other precision machined products. Governor Hassan was interested to learn firsthand of Omni’s recent improvements in workforce and career development, energy consumption, streamlined manufacturing processes, and work environment.
During her tour of the plant, Governor Hassan learned about Omni’s “green” initiative with efforts to reduce waste. She also learned about their installation of state-of-the-art air cleaning machinery for air quality and employee comfort. During the roundtable discussion that followed, Governor Hassan fielded questions from the audience and learned more about Omni’s support of M2D2 and UMass Lowell. Omni is a supporter of UMass Lowell by hiring student interns from the university’s engineering faculties. Omni is also a big supporter of M2D2 by seeking to work one-on-one with associated start-up companies in all aspects of their entrepreneurial endeavors.
