At the biannual Aerospace Montreal Innovation Forum, seven Vermont aerospace businesses and Governor Phil Scott met with international customers and competitors to do business and discuss the future of the industry in the state. With its ideal location between two aerospace hubs–Montreal and Connecticut–Vermont is a critical location within the supply chain for larger companies. A constellation of smaller businesses that manufacture precision parts for the industry are spread statewide. Business has been growing, as have the number of well paying jobs. With talk nationally of increased defense spending, Vermont’s aerospace businesses are ready to take on the increased demand.
