David DeMaio Raising Money for Closer to Free

All Funds Donated Benefit Smilow Cancer Hospital & Yale Cancer Center

Almost every one of us has been or will be, exposed to the devastating effects of cancer.  Six years ago, under the leadership and inspiration of David's sister, Denise, Team Tony’s Tigers was formed with the mission of riding in the Closer to Free Ride to raise funds for Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven.  The team rides in remembrance of victims of cancer, including his parents, Marie and Tony DeMaio and Pam DeMaio's mother, Marge Cordts, honoring cancer survivors and supporting everyone who has been affected by cancer in their lives.

On September 11, 2021, this year’s Closer to Free Ride will take place.  The goals are simple:  Awareness – The Best Treatment – Find a Cure.  We are hopeful that you will join the team of Tony’s Tigers by making a financial contribution to help others traveling this challenging path.

Where Is the Next Silicon Valley? Groton, Connecticut.

Groton Economic Development Press Release; July 6, 2021

Walker Potts, Executive Director of the Naval & Maritime Consortium, is anticipating significant economic growth tied to Groton's BlueTech industry. "This region has been a major hub of global maritime economic activity dating back to the 17th century, with a long heritage of seafaring, from fisherman and sailors, shipbuilders and ropemakers, naval architects, and maritime manufacturers. Today, that industry is coming back in a very significant and modern way," said Potts. "The region has secured billions in BlueTech investment over the coming decades, mostly centered around in the defense and energy sectors. That investment, along with innovative technology and workforce talent coming out of our universities and the private sector, is giving us the opportunity to see growth at the magnitude of Silicon Valley in the 1990s."

As the Executive Director of an organization with over one hundred members in the maritime industry, Potts is actively working to help BlueTech companies benefit from this windfall. "Our organization includes everything from small machine shops with 2 or 3 people all the way up to major suppliers that have been doing extensive work for OEMs for decades. Through mentorship, collaboration, and business networking, we bring companies together and create opportunities for growth." Some of this growth is coming through Electric Boat, who are effectively tripling their production capacity, and asking more than ever in terms of capacity and capability of the regional industrial base. Likewise, companies like Revolution Wind - a partnership between Eversource and Orsted - are also looking to local industrial suppliers to contribute to offshore wind projects as they approach the end of the permitting phase. With wind projects coming online, opportunities are on the rise for local suppliers to meet their needs. Much of the work in transport and installation, construction and construction support, inspections and maintenance, etc. will be sourced locally.

Meet Cirtronics at The Southern New England Design-2-Part Show

Cirtronics Press Release; June 17, 2021

06.23.21 – 06.24.21  •  Mohegan Sun Expo Center  •  Uncasville, CT

Cirtronics will be exhibiting at the upcoming Southern New England Design-2-Part Show, their first in-person event in over a year. This show attracts product companies from New England, many of whom manufacture products overseas and are considering reshoring.

Over the past year, many companies have discussed bringing their manufacturing to the US. Heightened awareness of risks and challenges over IP protection, product delivery, and total cost has become more concerning.

Tom Ferrin, Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), “Many companies were manufacturing overseas as a cost saver because labor costs have traditionally been lower than in the US. However, there is a broader set of considerations leading to the total cost. Moreover, they go well beyond aggregate part pricing and lower-cost labor. Those considerations are some of the most important drivers in the increasing decision to reshore.”

To facilitate reshoring, Cirtronics offers a suite of Transition to Manufacturing (T2M) services that accelerate products to full-scale production.  This suite of services ensures a smooth handoff of build processes and support in place for supply chain, quality, and testing.

Cirtronics welcomes further reshoring and total cost discussion at our booth #364 at the Southern New England Design-2-Part show. Cirtronics excels at complex builds for rigorous applications in regulated markets, including security, robotic, industrial, and medical devices.
