Roto’s Role in Local Manufacturing | Manufacturing Month 2023

Roto North America President & CEO, Chris Dimou, accompanied his colleagues at the “Made in America” breakfast meeting and were joined by Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, who served as the keynote speaker for the opening of this event.

At Roto North America, we are acutely aware of the importance of manufacturing to the community and the economy. Manufacturing is a central part of Connecticut’s economy, and we make sure to actively participate in activities, committees, and events that help support and further Connecticut’s manufacturing initiative.

Roto is part of many different organizations such as the South Central Manufacturing Partnership; who focuses on solving issues in the manufacturing industry in South Central Connecticut, Connex Connecticut; a platform that connects manufacturers and suppliers to improve supply-chains, and we are also a Connecticut Manufacturing Ambassador, which allows us to share our input and help solve manufacturing challenges.

The Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce and the South Central Manufacturing Partnership work closely with us and have visited Roto to discuss the challenges and advancement of manufacturing in Connecticut. We have also had the pleasure to welcome Connecticut’s Chief Manufacturing Officer, Paul Lavoie, into our plant and facilities and join him during monthly manufacturing webinars.

In addition to our collaboration with key members of the Connecticut manufacturing initiative, we have also participated in events throughout the state. Some of these events include the Connecticut Manufacturing, Engineering, and Technology Career fair, the “Meet the Manufacturers” networking event, the “Made in America” breakfast and manufacturing sessions, and the South Central Manufacturing Partnership’s Career Awareness Initiative to connect companies with high school students to share manufacturing opportunities. We’ve also participated in the Transition Academy’s Internship Program and provided manufacturing internship opportunities for individuals with behavioral and intellectual differences.

While we are focused and active in helping the community and the economy further manufacturing, we are also implementing advanced manufacturing technologies in our facilities through machines such as our state-of-the-art 5 axis laser machine at Roto Frank of America and Frech Die cast machine at Roto Fasco Canada.
