TOUR OF ADVANCED CABLE TIES, INC. (ACT) HIGHLIGHTS INVENTORY TAX’S IMPACT ON REGIONAL MANUFACTURING


The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Gardner Chamber of Commerce, and the Office of State Representative Jon Zlotnik (D-Gardner) partnered to organize a special manufacturing tour for legislative leaders of Advanced Cable Ties (ACT) on Friday, October 20, 2017.

Organized around Manufacturing Month, which falls in October, the tour highlighted the importance of manufacturing to North Central Massachusetts as well as legislative efforts to eliminate the inventory tax for manufacturers in order to boost the industry. Attendees on the tour, which included legislators, economic development officials, business leaders and members of the media, were able to get a behind the scenes look at ACT’s manufacturing process and how the company produces its cable tie products used by a variety of industries.

“The importance of manufacturing in the communities we serve cannot be overstated”, explained Jim Bellina of the Greater Gardner Chamber of Commerce. “We are fortunate to have business leaders such as Ken Tomasetti of Advanced Cable Ties.”

This region is home to the Commonwealth’s highest concentration of manufacturers” stated Roy Nascimento, President & CEO of the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce. “Manufacturing month grants us an opportunity to highlight the importance of this industry to our regional economy, acknowledging the benefits it provides in the form of stable, well-paying jobs as well as the impediments which hinder its continued success.”

The region’s 445 manufacturing firms account for one fourth of the jobs in the region. Companies range from the world class plastics industry cluster of more than 140 companies to pharmaceuticals to photonics and paper, as well as biomedical devices. Manufacturers today are some of the most well-paid, highly trained and in demand employees in the workforce, working on advanced equipment and technology. Supporting careers in advanced manufacturing and serving as fierce advocates for local manufacturers are a priority for the North Central Massachusetts Chamber.business
