Since it’s inception four years ago, the New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium has, well, taken off.

Developed as a way to help the more than 300 Granite State companies and manufacturers involved in these industries diversify their customer base, NHADEC is growing its membership outside of New Hampshire.

With partnerships established with AeroMontreal and the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium, NHADEC is fast becoming an international resource for companies looking for partnerships and other relationships with those here in New Hampshire.


Join NHADEC for its annual networking event on June 15. Meet others in the industry and hear about industry trends. Register today!


Aero/defense is one of the fastest growing industries in the state and NHADEC is taking it to new heights. On our monthly radio show yesterday on WTPL-FM, acting Director Chris Way and NHADEC executive Director Dawn Wivell talked about what’s new and what’s happening.

Tune in here.
