Conway Machine, Inc., along with other Arkansas manufacturers, recently sat down with Governor Mike Beebe and his cabinet members to discuss the workforce crisis now occurring in Arkansas and across the U.S. Everyone in attendance expressed the same concern: the lack of a skilled labor force is either prohibiting their company from growing at a faster rate and/or is costing the company significant revenues.
The event was coordinated by the Arkansas State Chamber and Associated Industries of Arkansas. Many good ideas were passed around to suggest solutions to this urgent problem. The biggest take-away was for the manufacturers themselves to become more involved in the local school and show students that manufacturing is a promising, rewarding and lucrative industry to join.
Conway Machine, Inc. has a lot to be thankful for this year. We have had one of our best sales years in a while, and we are on track to do even better next year! We couldn't do it without the loyalty and support of great customers. Thank you for valuing our products and services as much as we value your repeat business. Thanks for supporting a small, family-owned manufacturer.
