GOED Expects Contracts to Result from Aerospace Events

The buzz following last week’s Aerospace outreach events is that positive economic development will result from the connections made there. According to Uintah County Commissioner Mike McKee, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development says the Basin stops were among the most successful on their state tour and that they expect contracts to result from the connections made between Aerospace representatives and Basin companies. “We really have a strong talent pool here,” shares Commissioner McKee. “When you think of Aerospace you don’t necessarily think of the Basin and yet there are ties of things that Basin businesses are equipped to do.” Commissioner McKee also emphasized that it is thanks to the hard work of Economic Development Directors Sylvia Wilkins in Uintah County and Irene Hansen in Duchesne County that the event was such a success. The event hosted Aerospace powerhouses such as Lockheed Martin which is among world leaders in the Aerospace industry.
