“The company’s roots originated with Metal Fabrication in the 1970’s, Specialty Packaging in the ‘80’s, and Owens Brockway in the 1990’s. In 1999, Robert Hughes purchased the business and has operated it successfully for nearly two decades. Eyelet Design serves customers across the whole spectrum of major cosmetics marketeers and key sub-suppliers in the industry.”
“The greatest competitive advantage any company can have is knowledge! At Machine Equipment Brokers, LLC, it’s precisely what separates us from our competition. We begin by taking the time to understand exactly how and why you need to SELL your surplus assets… or BUY the technology you require.”
The NRWIB’s history dates back to 1962 when the first substantial federal training programs in the postwar period was enacted, Manpower Development Training Act (MDTA).
Starting with MDTA, there have been four main federal workforce development programs. MDTA became the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), enacted in 1973, which then became the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA).
Major changes were implemented under JTPA, which provided classroom and on-the-job training to low-income and dislocated workers, included service delivery at the level of 640 “service delivery areas,” federal funding allocation first to state governors and then to Private Industry Councils in each of the service delivery areas (unlike CETA, which provided allocations directly to prime sponsors), prohibition of the public service employment component, and a new emphasis on targeted job training and reemployment. JTPA eventually transformed into the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), which has become what we now know as the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act.
Throughout all of these iterations, our mission has remained the same. We are business-led, we are business focused, and we aim to create the workforce employers need while offering opportunities for our area jobseekers.
“Founded in 1938 by Raymond E. Drouin, The Waterbury Screw Machine Products Company has been family owned and operated for four generations.
The original plant was located in Cheshire, CT. By 1947, the company expanded and relocated to its current location along the Naugatuck River in Waterbury. The facility was destroyed during the infamous “Flood of 1955,” but through the passion and hard work of its employees, the company survived. The current 13,000 square foot facility was completed by 1964 and has remained virtually unchanged ever since, just like our dedication to quality.”
