nation’s advanced manufacturing base as a foundation for job creation and improved economic competitiveness. Current activity, on behalf of the New Mexico Economic Development Department, includes work on an Asset & Supply Chain Map of New Mexico companies that do business directly or indirectly with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Our move to the Sandia Science & Technology Park (SS&TP) has been a delightful experience.
