Aerospace/Defense Reaching New Heights in New Hampshire

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Tune into this month’s edition of New Hampshire Business Matters and learn about the NH Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium.

What fast-growing industry in New Hampshire is home to about 350 companies involved in the sector; employs about 60,000 people, who earn an average salary of more than $87,000 and comprises about 2 percent of the gross state product?

Aerospace and defense.

That was the topic of this month’s New Hampshire Business Matters radio show on WTPL-FM, with Division of Economic Development Director Will Arvelo and guest Steve Myers, program manager for Southwest Research Institute, located on the campus of the University of New Hampshire.
