The BOB Awards, handed out every year by our friends at New Hampshire Business Review, recognize scores of businesses from around the state for how they conduct their business; it’s a measure of the best of the best.

So we are pleased to receive two awards this year for our efforts with the Sector Partnership Initiative and Expanding Global Trade.

“With 3,500 ballots cast for 2017 awards, the BOBs continue to be considered a standard of excellence in the New Hampshire business community,” said NHBR Editor Jeff Feingold.

On hand to accept the awards were Commissioner Rose; Carol Miller, our broadband technology director; and Michael Power, Office of Workforce Opportunity and Phil Przybyszewski, who coordinate the Sector Partnership Initiative.

Thank you for the honor!

 

New Hampshire Meets the World at Hannover Messe

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

Hannover

If the world didn’t know about New Hampshire a week ago, it sure does today.

Halfway through Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial trade fair, Carmen Lorentz, director of the Division of Economic Development, and Tina Kasim, of the Office of International Commerce, have put behind them dozens of meetings.

“We met with 13 European industry clusters (Tuesday), all in different advanced manufacturing areas,” Lorentz said. “We talked about how we might work together to match New Hampshire and European businesses for joint R&D projects.”

Throughout the five-day show, Lorentz and Kasim are scheduled to meet with representatives from more than 30 companies, from places like Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, France and Belgium, which have businesses and manufacturers that complement our key industries. The goal of attending this trade show is to make connections with international companies that may have an interest in investing here; forming partnerships; or expansion or relocation to the US.

One New Hampshire company is also exhibiting at the show. Jewell Instruments, which is located in Manchester, is a world leader in the manufacture and distribution of acceleration and tilt sensors, as well as avionics components, solenoids and panel meters. Its JMA-165 MEMS accelerometer has been nominated for Direct Industry’s i-NOVO Design Award.

Hanover Messe has 17 huge exhibit halls and over the course of the show, more than 200,000 people are projected to pass through there. There is great value in being here to tell the New Hampshire business story to an international audience.
