Editors Corner “Given the foundational role the manufacturing sector plays in our nation’s economy, it is deeply concerning that at a time when jobs are in such high demand, the number of vacant manufacturing positions continues to grow,” said Paul Wellener, Deloitte executive. He adds, “To attract a new generation of workers, the industry should work together to change the perception of work in manufacturing and expand its talent pipeline.”

About 1.4 million U.S. manufacturing jobs were lost during the pandemic, setting back the manufacturing labor force by more than a decade. However, the industry has largely recovered those lost jobs and is now urgently seeking more workers. Today, 77% of manufacturers say they have difficulties in attracting and retaining workers.

Feature Articles.........1,34-36,50-51,56-57

Your employees don’t even have to be actively looking for a new job for you to lose them. Years ago, an unhappy employee scoured the help wanted ads to find a new position. Today, your employees likely have a LinkedIn profile, and they don’t even have to be looking for a job to be pursued. Both of my adult children have been contacted by headhunters through their LinkedIn accounts - unsolicited. Daughter had been with the same employer for nearly a decade, which she joined right out of school. Son too had been with his employer from the time he graduated. Daughter loved her job, but not her management. They lacked a concern for their employees, and their turnover was exceptionally high. When my daughter, who is an Oncology Pharmacist, was approached by headhunters, she made the decision to pursue interviewing, and months ago, she accepted a new job. It wasn’t money that made her leave; rather it was a more flexible work environment and an excellent management team.

Index of Advertisers............................. 94

My son, on the other hand, really enjoys his job, and he has a great manager. He is a chemical engineer, and over the years, his employer has continuously provided training to help him grow, and even partially funded his graduate degree. Nonetheless, when my son was approached by headhunters over the past year, he has accepted the opportunities to interview. You can look at these two scenarios and say that the employer could lose both individuals. That’s true, but the reality is that the employer was partially responsible for the pharmacist’s departure. On the other hand, the engineer remains with his employer today because he has been treated well and is satisfied. There hasn’t been an opportunity that looks as attractive as what he has today. In an article written by Clayton Browne, the author describes five attributes for successful manufacturing companies. In his words, “First, they have savvy, experienced management. Second, they have fair to generous compensation and benefits. Third, they have low turnover and a general employee perception of being treated fairly. Fourth is a comprehensive employee training program and a focus on continuing education. Finally, they have a culture that emphasizes open information flow and innovation.“ It is noteworthy that Browne’s list for well performing manufacturers all have employees as an integral ingredient. Let’s face it. Your business success is highly dependent on finding, hiring, and retaining the best employees. It’s not easy today, as they can be ‘poached’ even when they aren’t looking for a new position. Do everything you can to make sure that unwanted departures of your great employees aren’t the norm. In closing, God bless our troops, particularly those in Afghanistan today. Until next issue, I wish you the best.

With MPower, Mazak customers gain fast and accurate replacement parts ordering and service scheduling along with direct, real-time access to Mazak for a multitude of support benefits. Those include expert technical service through the company’s Remote Assist Services and on-demand training with its Learning Management System in addition to local support from a network of Technology and Technical Centers and Mazak’s cost-effective Spindle Rebuilding Services. Through Mazak’s eight Technology Centers and five Technical Centers located throughout North America, the MPower program also gives customers convenient and local access to additional support.

To streamline replacement parts ordering, MPower enables shops to digitally connect with Mazak and view an online image of the part along with its price, then easily place an order from Mazak’s inventory of more than 500,000 unique part numbers in stock and receive next day delivery. In the near future, shops will be able to simply pull up their specific machine model and serial number, and Mazak will cross reference the part number to ensure the correct replacement. This information can be obtained currently with one phone call. For machine service, shops can now log on to the new My Mazak service portal in real time to access account information, open a work order, check the availability of the next service technician or resolve the issue over the phone with tech support. When an in-person service call is scheduled, shops can check on the status of an existing work order or track when to expect the service technician to arrive. Time is money for today’s manufacturers, and Mazak’s Remote Assist service shortens the mean time to repair and reduces the costs associated with in-person field service calls.

When a machine repair requires parts, shops can also use Remote Assist to identify the correct replacement so Mazak can ship it to a field service technician for direct installation. This process eliminates an in-person diagnostics visit before the parts order, saving an average of two days of downtime. In addition to combining diagnostics and part orders into a single virtual visit, Mazak’s Remote Assist offers threeway connections that let service technicians collaborate on solutions with other experts. Because spindles are the heart of every machine tool, Mazak’s Spindle Rebuild Department offers customers fast and precise spindle rebuilding services under the MPower umbrella.

Arizona Manufacturers Suppliers Alliance Finding local suppliers can be a difficult and task. Too often our own job responsibilities hinder us from the time and effort it takes to find the best supplier for our needs. And with a quick internet search, many national companies appear at the top of the search results, not local suppliers that can help with more than just an immediate buy. Think of it this way, how many times have you bought a new table, supplies, or any item that arrived at your facility and it was not what you thought it would be? Many times, we simply keep these items, allowing them to A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

However, something so trivial at the time ends up creating larger problems that employees must either work around or adjust to. But what if there was a way to find local suppliers more conveniently? The Arizona Manufactures Suppliers Alliance (ASMA) was created to help address the needs of many companies and organizations looking for local suppliers. Their main objective is to bring awareness to the many manufacturing suppliers in Arizona and keep business connections local, rather than finding suppliers through the internet or in another state or country. The ASMA is looking to grow to help with the expanding manufacturing industry in the state of Arizona and help small, medium, and large manufacturers work together and keep Arizona business within the state.

Industrial Solutions, LLC of Arizona (ISI), in partnership with Nerdery, will be co-sponsoring these events to help get manufacturers and local suppliers together to talk about the real needs of manufacturers in Arizona. Nerdery and ISI have started AMSA to help communicate any needs and challenges that manufacturers and their suppliers are seeing. Our goal is to get more members to join as well as bring manufacturers aboard who are looking for resources but don’t know where to start. We want to be the first source of Arizona manufacturers and are taking steps to be that resource with the Arizona Manufacturing Suppliers Alliance. The group has brought together organizations from all areas to provide the best possible resources for small to medium manufacturers who do not have the bandwidth to do this on their own. AMSA is looking to help provide the members customers with a broad array of resources, so if the member cannot help their customer directly, they have someone they can refer that is a trusted AMSA member. Becoming trusted advisors for our customers builds relationships and trust and allows for more open communication between supplier and client. ASMA has a well-rounded list of local manufacturing suppliers including commercial insurance, business banking, HR services, employment services, safety consulting, lean consulting and lean tooling, IT and software services, industrial tool supply, industrial janitorial supply, industrial moving and rigging services, grant writing, corporate fitness, manufacturing expense reduction, 3D

manufacturing, cable networking, and machine and motion sales. As AMSA continues to grow they are looking to bring aboard other suppliers and services that benefit manufacturers and help them find local services. AMSA also invites manufacturers to be part of the group and lead mastermind groups that talk about the problems that they are experiencing and participating in brainstorming sessions of how to work through those areas of concern. Manufacturers are not always able to speak with people outside their organization to help solve problems they are undergoing in the current economy. Arizona Manufacturing Suppliers Alliance is looking to help provide the best possible help that any manufacturer can use easily.

With $4.4b In New Capital, Lucid Plans To More Than Triple Size Of Arizona Factory

the first half of this year, but it has been delayed as the company works out some final kinks amid a tightened supply of chips that has affected most of the auto industry this year.

Fresh from raising $4.4 billion by going public in a blankcheck merger, California-based Lucid Group Inc. is ready to more than triple the size of its Arizona car factory.

Rawlinson told Fox Business that he is pushing to compete with the likes of Mercedes, BMW and Porsche, but also wants to have more affordable prices eventually for Lucid.

Lucid now has 999,000 square feet of factory in Casa Grande, south of Phoenix, where it is pushing to deliver its first electric vehicles. It has room there to eventually expand to 5.1 million square feet.

“My passion is to drive that cost down as soon as possible and the sooner [we] can get the pure addition, Pure Air out late next year, then we can get that price point way down into the $70,000” area,” he said, adding that more models at lower prices are coming later.By Cromwell Schubarth – Silicon Valley Business Journal

The first cars it makes there will be the “Dream” edition of the Air luxury sedan sedan. With a starting price of $169,000, this top-of-the-line version of the Newark company’s EV is already sold out, with about 500 buyers lined up. Next up will be the Air “Grand Touring,” which starts at $131,500. A “Touring” version next year will cost at least $87,500. The least-costly $69,000 “Pure” edition isn’t expected to be widely available before 2023, though the company has said it could begin deliveries as early as next year. The “Dream” was originally scheduled for delivery in 22 / Oct 2021 22• •Sept Jan / Feb 2020

PMA’s July report shows that 36% of metalforming companies forecast an improvement in economic activity CMM Revo Half Page Final.indd 1 in the next three months (the same percentage as reported in June), 55% predict no change (compared to 52% last month) and 9% anticipate a decline in activity (decreasing from 12% in June). Sixty-three percent of respondents reported an increase in lead times, slightly down from 66% in June. “PMA members continue to report significant problems in finding the raw materials needed to meet demand,” said PMA President David Klotz. “As we have been reporting, members are telling us that their lead times are extending into midyear of 2022 for steel, with similar challenges for aluminum, copper, brass and other metals. Combined with continued difficulty in finding workers and the semiconductor shortage that has idled some auto plants, our members are facing a challenging environment. PMA, through its One Voice advocacy team in Washington, D.C., continues to press the Biden Administration to end the damaging Section 232 steel and aluminum tariffs to help increase supply, and to help the industry recruit workers by promoting awareness and training.” Current average daily shipping levels remained steady in July, with 45% reporting an increase (compared to 43% in June), 38% reporting no change (decreasing from 39%

last month) and 17% reporting a decrease (compared to 18% in June). 4/6/2020 2:04:17 PM The survey revealed an expectation for a slight uptick in incoming orders in the next three months, with 42% forecasting an increase in orders (compared to 38% in June), 45% predicting no change (increasing from 44% last month) and 13% anticipating a decrease in orders (compared to 18% in June). Five percent of responding metalforming companies had a portion of their workforce on short time or layoff in July, compared to 4% in June. Full report results are available at public/business_reports/pdf/BCREP.pdf. PMA is the full-service trade association representing the $137-billion metalforming industry of North America— the industry that creates precision metal products using stamping, fabricating, spinning, slide forming and roll forming technologies, and other value-added processes. Its more than 850 member companies also include suppliers of equipment, materials and services to the industry. PMA leads companies toward superior competitiveness and profitability through advocacy, networking, statistics, the PMA Educational Foundation, FABTECH tradeshows, and MetalForming and 3D Metal Printing magazines.

Hyundai Invests In Albuquerque Tech Startup Automaker Hyundai recently added Albuquerque technology startup Pajarito Powder to its arsenal of investments. The car manufacturer declined to disclose the amount of the investment, but confirmed that it contributed to Pajarito’s Series B investment round in June, when the startup disclosed $9.4 million in funding to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Using a proprietary production process and materials, Pajarito creates catalysts for fuel cells, which generate electricity and electrolyzers, which produce hydrogen. Fuel cells are gaining traction across multiple car companies as alternatives to other types of engines. “Hyundai Motor Company is monitoring various related companies and research institutes to further strengthen its leadership in [the] hydrogen energy field. Pajarito Powder is one of the companies that we have been interested in. We conducted some sample tests with Pajarito Powder before the investment, and we expect more synergy between the A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

two companies,” Hyundai spokeswoman Jihyun Park said. “More research and consideration are needed to officially reveal specific technology and commercialization plans.” Hyundai is among several automakers that have explored hydrogen fuel cells, including competitors Honda and Toyota. Pajarito Powder was founded in 2012 and, in addition to Hyundai, has received investment in the past from the Verge Fund in Albuquerque and Omphalos Venture Partners in Minnesota. It also sourced intellectual property from the University of New Mexico and Los Alamos National Laboratory, according to a Pajarito presentation from 2016. The company previously announced it doubled its commercial sales in 2020 compared to 2019, citing “increased interest” in hydrogen fuel cell products and “rapidly growing demand” for electrolyzer materials. The primary markets for fuel cell catalysts were in Asia. North America had strong demand for electrolyzer catalysts, according to Pajarito Powder. “With one of the most successful fuel cell programs in the world, Hyundai’s investment and backing adds high-level credibility to our work and accelerates our ability to bring high-performance catalyst products to the rapidly growing

Boeing Reports Surprise Profit and Says Will Cut Fewer Jobs Boeing landed its first quarterly profit since 2019 due to a recovering commercial aviation market that will enable the company to cut fewer jobs than initially planned, according to results released on July 28.. The aviation giant reported a second-quarter profit of $587 million, compared with a loss of $2.4 billion in the same three months of 2020 at the height of the pandemic, sending Boeing’s shares surging. The results, which surprised analysts who had projected another loss, marked the company’s first positive earnings since the third quarter of 2019 before coronavirus shuttered the economy. It comes as commercial airlines are pivoting to meet surging travel demand as Covid-19 vaccines have become available. Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun said the company will keep its workforce at the current 140,000, rather than cutting to 130,000 as announced earlier in the pandemic. He cited “encouraging” industry recovery trends in a letter to employees.

“We’re seeing more stability in our staffing levels, as the commercial market recovery accelerates, our defense and government services business targets growth opportunities and we increase investments to further strengthen engineering, and drive quality in our production system,” Calhoun said. Boeing’s revenues rose to $17 billion, up 44% from a year earlier, and the company saw higher operating earnings in defense, space and security. It also saw a much smaller quarterly loss in its commercial plane division, thanks largely to the resumption of deliveries of the 737 MAX that were suspended after the 20-month grounding following two fatal crashes. Boeing also swung to a profit in its global services business after the division had a loss last year as a result of Covid-19 costs. Despite the strong results, Boeing still faces questions over its operations, most recently with the 787 Dreamliner plane. Boeing has halted deliveries of the jets and lowered production levels while it does additional reworking on the plane. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

GoDaddy Research Shows Growing Microbusinesses Helping Fuel Arizona’s Economy Phoenix has always been known as a small business powerhouse. Apparently the smallest of the small are becoming a big economic engine for the region. In Phoenix, the number of so-called microbusinesses grew 65% from the first quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021, the 10th largest gain in the country, according to the July 2021 Venture Forward Report, part of a research effort led by Tempebased web domain registrar GoDaddy to better understand these tiny businesses and how they create jobs and boost household income across the country. GoDaddy specifically defines a microbusiness as a discrete domain with an active website, including companies, nonprofits, causes or ideas like email, payments or security. Ninety percent of the companies surveyed by GoDaddy have 10 or fewer employees and many of them operate as “soloprenuers” doing this work on the side. The Venture Forward project initially started in 2018, but the research took on a new importance during its public launch in April 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic started to spread and reshape the economy. Many small businesses closed for good in the past year, but GoDaddy’s research found that online microbusinesses flourished during the pandemic, meaning that their collective economic clout could be overlooked. GoDaddy estimates there are approximately 20 million microbusinesses in the country and their ranks have swollen during the past 17 months as people were laid off from other work or decided to focus on their business full time.The study A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 26 • Sept / Oct 2021

also found that adding one online microbusiness per 100 people increases household income by $485 and that each microbusiness an entrepreneur creates, on average, two or more jobs in the community even if the microbusiness itself doesn’t have employees. During a virtual address on June 30, GoDaddy CEO Aman Bhutani said this research aims to better understand and better serve the people that run these microbusinesses.“The Venture Forward dataset is helping us understand this population in a way policymakers never have before,” he said. “Because these microbusinesses are either too small or too new, most operate below the radar of traditional methods of economic tracking.” GoDaddy has partnered with outside institutions including Arizona State University, University of Iowa, UCLA’s Anderson Forecast and the Milken Institute to conduct

Since 1964, Precision Die & Stamping has maintained a philosophy that expertly designed tooling and dedication to customer service are number one priorities. This type of expertise and dedication has fostered a reputation of excellence in the tooling and stamping industry. Located in Tempe, Arizona, our 100,000 Sq. Ft. Facility contains state of the art equipment , with production capabilities ranging from simple geometries to complex forms with intricate details. Precision enjoys a world-class reputation supplying a variety of OEMs, managing their inventory levels, and making certain product quality and timely delivery are NEVER compromised. research on the dataset and produce more findings. GoDaddy has taken this project outside the company and into city halls across the country as well. Its first partnership was with the city of Gilbert. Alex Rosen, director of Venture Forward, said that before the pandemic some of these insights were simply nice to know, but now they’re helping inform economic recovery. Rosen said officials in Gilbert used findings from Venture Forward to better understand the 35,000 microbusinesses in the city, modify their pandemic response and allow microbusinesses to access millions of dollars in CARES Act funding as a result. The study has also uncovered more detail on how microbusinesses have an outsized impact in Black communities. GoDaddy found that last year the number of new business starts increased by 60% compared to 2019; In majority Black ZIP codes new business start grew 125% during the same period. Robert Brown, senior director of Venture Forward research and insights, said that Black communities across the country adapted to the pandemic by grabbing their bootstraps. “These communities were potentially more affected by the Covid downturn, whether that’s through service jobs or maybe lower paying jobs, but their reaction to that was to kind of

grab their bootstraps and pull them up and go and produce something to help move their family forward when their job was displaced.” Venture Forward also found that the federal government’s stimulus checks played a big role in Black communities; Microbusiness startups increased more in majority-Black ZIP codes following the disbursal of the checks than it did in ZIP codes where Blacks are in the minority. GoDaddy describes the project as a multiyear research effort and Brown said there’s no end date set. GoDaddy’s primary customers are business owners and entrepreneurs who need websites, so on some level Venture Forward does help the company to simply better understand its customer segmentation. But Brown said its purpose is much deeper than that. Venture Forward doesn’t generate any revenue for the company and it isn’t a marketing activity, but it does tie back to the company’s reason for existing, he noted. “Our mission is to radically shift the global economy toward micro businesses,” Brown said. “Our mission as a company aligns with a lot of what we’re hearing from local politicians in terms of creating that fairness and equality of opportunity. So we’re uniquely positioned to do that.” By Andy Blye – Phoenix Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Are you participating in the estimated $360 billion market of defense contracts? If you are, whether you are a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd tier supplier, you are required to comply with CMMC. CMMC, which stands for ‘Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification’, is a unifying standard for the implementation of cybersecurity across the defense industrial base here in the US. CMMC is a requirement to enhance the cybersecurity throughout our defense industry. CMMC applies to anyone in the defense contract supply chain, and according to the DoD, CMMC standards will affect over 300,000 businesses, small, medium, and large. If you are struggling with CMMC implementation, you are not alone. And if you are a small manufacturing entity, with less than a couple of hundred employees, it is likely that you don’t have an in-house Information Technology (IT) department.

Introducing Onsite Technical Services. They are currently assisting a number of small and medium precision manufacturing businesses to implement CMMC. That isn’t all they are doing; they are also helping with all aspects of IT services, from help desk to data backup, to cloud services, to software management, to name a few. A little background on Onsite Technical Services “OTS” is helpful. Jim Hunton founded the company more than 17 years ago, in 2004. Prior to starting his business, Jim spent his earlier career in the aerospace manufacturing industry as well as in IT. “I have a passion for manufacturing and for information technology. After working for a small IT company and gaining the necessary certifications, I decided to open my own IT business.” Today the company is one of the few authorized Microsoft Elite Microsoft Partners in the country that can provide software as a service to their clients. OTS offers a wide range of IT services, geared specifically to small and medium manufacturers. In Jim’s words, if your company has less than 250 computers on your network, you likely don’t have a full time IT department in-house and you can benefit from OTS’ services. The company feels that offering a brick and mortar company to its clients in Arizona, with all Onsite employees highly A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

skilled and local, brings a level of service to its clients that can’t easily be duplicated with companies who utilize remote staff from other parts of the world. Onsite’s offerings include: • Managed IT Services; With this offering you receive a customized IT service program billed to you on a monthly flat-fee rate. • Help Desk; When you need assistance with network and PC issues, software support, or virus removal, Onsite Help Desk offers a knowledgeable, highly trained IT department at your service. • Haas (Hardware as a Service); Trying to maintain your business’ computer hardware in-house requires major financial resources - and since hardware requires consistent upgrades and quickly depreciates, the costs continue. OTS offers HaaS (Hardware as a Service) to its customers, providing them with a complete IT hardware solution in one simple, monthly plan. • Data Backup And Recovery; Jim says this is the most important service you could ever sign up for, as OTS specializes in computer, data, and hard drive backup, as well as system recovery. “We use a unique system that backs up all of your domain and server information and stores it in a dissimilar server off site so you’ll always be able to re-access your data quickly”, he says. • Cloud Computing: When you sign up for OTS’ cloud computing services, your business’s vital systems and data will be protected from loss, and even theft. Further, with their built in data backup and secure data storage, you’ll never have to worry about losing your data in the event of any disaster. • ITAR/DFARS/NIST/ CMMC; Hunton’s background is in the manufacturing industry, which has some very unique IT requirements. As a result, Onsite has a number of customers in the Aerospace/ DoD industries. The company can help

hybrid cloud approach is the most economical way for a business to use technology.” Jim adds that clients also appreciate the contracts Onsite utilizes. He says, “Our contracts are simple. If a client needs out, they can get out. There’s no fine print holding them hostage.” Onsite offers its “100% satisfaction guaranteed”. In Jim’s word, “We want you to be completely satisfied with our services. Give us one month to manage your network, and if you’re not completely happy with the OTS experience, we will refund your money.”

customers to achieve compliancy/ certification in: 1. I TAR, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations which is a US regulation that controls the manufacture, sale, and distribution of defense and space-related products and services. 2. DFARS, the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, which is a set of cybersecurity regulations that the Department of Defense (DoD) now imposes on external contractors and suppliers. It is closely coupled with CMMC. 3. N IST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which provides a portfolio of services for measurements, standards, and legal metrology solutions that ensure measurement traceability, enable quality assurance, and harmonize documentary standards and regulatory practices. NIST is operated by the US Department of Commerce, and it is beneficial to know that CMMC uses a framework based largely on NIST 800-171 standards. This means that meeting NIST 800-171 is a natural bridge to CMMC. Jim says, “CMMC is undoubtedly a necessary but difficult standard DoD suppliers have to manage to. The good news is the government offers incentives for raising cybersecurity standards: Many cyber expenses can qualify for the new Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit. The credit provides up to 11% net federal cash benefit for qualified research expenses (QRE) in the United States. Potentially, as much as 50% to 75% of certain types of cybersecurity spend could qualify.” He encourages you to talk with your CPA about the tax benefits for your business. You may think you cannot afford outsourced IT services for your small manufacturing business. The reality is that you can’t afford not to invest in IT. Cyberattacks on big companies dominate the news, but small businesses are big targets, too. One in five small businesses fall victim to a cyberattack and of those, 60 percent go out of business in six months. And the data show that most small business owners don’t have a plan for response if they’re hit. Jim says, “Our customers appreciate that we are based in Arizona, as they are too. They also like our approach to cloud solutions; we support both on-premises and cloud solutions. Through experience, we find that a

Hear From A Few Onsite Customers “I have personally worked with Jim Hunton and Onsite Technical Services for more than 8 years now, and our company has been using his services for even longer than that. We are a manufacturing company with just under 100 employees and we feel that utilizing the technical expertise of Jim and his staff is the most cost effective way to provide our IT needs. Contracting with Onsite Technical Services really works for Systems 3. As a consultant partner to our business, we find Jim and his staff to be extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Onsite Technical Services does all of our server maintenance, IT security and disaster recovery planning and execution, procurement and set up of personal computers, and they assist us with ensuring our company employees all have consistent software, whether it is our MRP, business application or engineering software. Jim has been invaluable in advising Systems 3 on a substantial project to bring us into

compliance with NIST/CMMC requirements. As a Department of Defense supplier, we must meet NIST 800-171 and FAR 48 CFR 52.204-21 regulations to prevent the distribution of defense information outside of the United States. Like all companies supplying products to the DoD, Systems 3 must demonstrate compliance to these standards, and Jim has been instrumental in preparing Systems 3 for compliance. This initiative is so critical that not only are we relying upon the resources of Onsite Technical Services, but we have an internal team member who is dedicated to the effort. NIST/CMMC affects any organization that is in the supply chain supporting the Department of Defense. Small and medium machine shops normally don’t have dedicated IT resources, and they need to know that compliance will be required if they are doing business in the DoD supply chain. I highly encourage you to get in touch with Onsite Technical Services for help in attaining this goal. It is a must for your business.” Steve, General Manager, Systems 3, Inc., Tempe, AZ “We Don’t Think About IT Anymore, We Call Onsite & It’s Handled. The Onsite Technical Services Hybrid Cloud Solution is wonderful! It works beautifully! There are two BIG benefits. 1) Our equipment is always maintained without hiring in-house IT personnel. 2) We have access to company files, email etc. from anywhere without security or privacy issues… Signing up for your managed service agreement is the best thing we ever did. We don’t think about IT anymore, we just call you and it’s handled. In the past I have had recurring disputes with other IT firms because they only put band aides on issues, sent a bill and the problem was either not fixed or reoccurred with additional billing. Make Onsite Technical Services your first choice! You have nothing to lose and peace of mind to gain. Jim, I am your #1 fan.” Linda, Office Manager, Door Manufacturer “Onsite is a complete value to our company. What we pay for them on a monthly basis we couldn’t get this level of service or expertise if we hired a full time IT person at our company.

In these cases, it would cost more money to hire the IT staff, and then we would have a difficult time ensuring thatXXX-XXX-XXXX they are constantly trained with the most up to date IT tools and services. With our monthly plan, we get the rental cost of all Microsoft products, Onsite’s Help Desk services, and we order all of our computers through them. This keeps us on warranty for the products we invest in. When I came to this company our IT department was horrendous. Since I had worked with Onsite at my previous employer, I immediately brought them in to turn our IT department around. Perhaps one of the most important things that Onsite has helped us with is our compliance to NIST. Anybody doing business with DoD companies will have to achieve compliance. Two years ago, with the help of Onsite, we passed this hurdle on the first try. I highly recommend Onsite to anybody, and welcome anyone who is interested in getting a 2nd opinion to call me. You can’t get superior IT at the cost you will be paying Onsite. They are just that good. IT is so critical in running a factory, and we can’t ask for better customer service, expertise, and support.” Marshall, President/ CEO, Manufacturing Company, Phoenix, AZ

We Must Fund Workforce Development In the coming days, weeks and months, policymakers in Congress and the White House will make decisions that will impact peoples’ lives for years to come. As lawmakers continue to work toward a bipartisan physical infrastructure bill and reconciliation legislation, it’s vital that they prioritize funding for workforce development strategies that will help workers prepare for those good jobs. Without robust investments in workforce development, we risk fueling an already unequal recovery. Analysis from the Georgetown University Center on Education and Workforce found that in a trillion-dollar infrastructure package, 90 percent of jobs would be created in traditionally male-dominated fields, and a significant share of the jobs created would require at least some training. By creating affordable, accessible pathways to these new jobs, we can ensure those hit hardest by the pandemic, including women, people of color and workers with barriers to employment such as those without a college degree and returning citizens, have a fair shot at obtaining them. America Achieves, New America, and more than 30 other workforce-related organizations recently released a joint letter calling on Congress to include investments in workforce development as part of upcoming infrastructure and economic recovery legislation. Specifically, in the letter, the organizations called for a $100 billion investment in workforce development. The $100 billion would fund priorities like expanding registered apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeships, wraparound supports for dislocated workers, sector-based training programs focused on target industries, and job training for justice-involved individuals.

100 members of the House of Representatives have released their own Dear Colleague letter requesting at least $100 billion in new spending for workforce development be included in the upcoming reconciliation package. Workforce funding is critical to making sure that as we invest in infrastructure, clean energy, caregiving and other industries, workers have equitable access to good jobs in those fields. Many employers already play a role in providing extensive training for their incumbent workers and new hires, and have begun to shift to skills-based hiring. But there’s more to be done, and some employers — particularly small and mid-sized businesses — may need help partnering with education and training p ro v i d e r s a n d c o m m u n i t y based organizations to stand up apprenticeship and other training programs, recruit workers and ensure new hires have skills needed to fill open positions. Workforce funding is not a panacea. Investing in workforce development is no substitute for full employment, strong labor rights and protections, equitable distribution of infrastructure funds, skills-based hiring, and higher job quality. Surrounding communities should have a say in infrastructure projects, and companies should hire from those communities. But workforce development funding is a key part of this overall effort, and the U.S. invests far less in our workforce development system compared to other OECD countries. The pandemic exposed and exacerbated longstanding inequities in our labor market.

“Our June quarter results continued to be strong leading off our fiscal year 2022 on a positive note,” Microchip president and CEO Ganesh Moorthy said in a statement. “June quarter revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP EPS were all records, as every key aspect of our business over-performed our guidance. Moorthy took over as CEO in March, replacing longtime leader Steve Sanghi, who has since become the company’s executive chair. Moorthy said “the entire semiconductor supply chain remains constrained” and that the company projects net sales to grow even more in the next quarter. The Preferred Supply Program was implemented earlier this year in an effort to address the semiconductor shortage by allowing customers to lock in prioritized capacity access if they agree to setting longer-term, non-cancellable orders in the second half of this year and the first half of 2022.

There are several factors contributing to the global shortage of semiconductors. The pandemic’s physically-distant world increased demand for consumer electronics like laptops or tablets, and some chip users (most notably automakers) cancelled their orders early in the pandemic. By cancelling orders these customers gave up their spot in the chip line, which is still playing out because the semiconductor fabrication process takes months to complete. As a result, automakers like GM and Ford have had to shutter some production of new vehicles this year due to lack of chips. Moorthy previously told the Business Journal that these supply constraints could continue in 2022, a sentiment that has since been echoed by others in the industry and repeated in the company’s quarterly regulatory filing.

Battery Cell Maker Picks West Valley For $500 Million Plant, Will Hire 3,000 After a search that lasted more than two years and included over 300 sites in 20 different states, KORE Power Inc. will build its manufacturing facility in Buckeye, where it expects to employ about 3,000 people. Coeur d’Alene, Idaho-based KORE had narrowed its selection to sites in Arizona, Florida and Texas before deciding on the Grand Canyon State a few weeks ago, Lindsay Gorrill, CEO of the company, said. The plant is expected to total 1 million square feet. “At the end of the day, we selected Arizona,” he said. “The governor’s team, A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

KORE is one of few battery cell developers in the world, and the only one that is wholly owned by a U.S.-based company. The company produces battery cells, which can then be put into a variety of different forms, including for use in electric vehicles, and can also be used for energy storage, including for solar and wind power that needs to be stored and used at a later time. Arizona is a growing hub for the production of electric vehicles and its batteries. Lucid Motors, Nikola Corp., ElectraMeccanica and Local Motors all chose to build their EVs in the state. Battery recycler Li-Cycle is building a facility in Gilbert and EV parts producer UACJ Whitehall is setting up shop in Flagstaff. Developing the first phase of the Buckeye plant is expected to cost about $500 million. There is room on the site to grow capacity beyond the first phase, but expansions will be dictated by market need, he said. At full buildout, the company is expecting the total project cost to be just under $1 billion. One of the reasons KORE wanted a U.S. manufacturing plant was to be near customers and suppliers, Gorrill said, About two-thirds of the jobs at the plant will be manufacturing, he said. Other jobs include engineers and warehousing and distribution positions. Hiring has already begun for some of those jobs.By Corina Vanek – Phoenix Business Journal

Electric Aircraft To Use Flight Display From Albuquerque Manufacturer Technology from Albuquerque’s BendixKing, a subsidiary of manufacturing giant Honeywell, will be used on a new electric aircraft that boasts a range of 440 nautical miles. The deal represents an opportunity in electric flight operations for Honeywell and BendixKing, which provides electronics for flight display, navigation and communication solutions. As part of an agreement, BendixKing’s AeroVue Touch system will be integrated into the flight deck for the Alice — an electric c o m m u t e r a i r p l a n e f ro m Seattle-based electric aviation company Eviation. The AeroVue display uses technology that can create three-dimensional renderings of upcoming terrain. It also has a “fly-by-wire” system from Honeywell, a fully electronic, automated flight control system that replaces manual controls with an electronic interface, doing away with hydraulics. The Eviation Alice aircraft is one several concepts for an electric aircraft, which are gaining momentum in aviation as different models of all-electric planes take flight. The first test flight of the Alice is reportedly set to occur this year, according to Bloomberg. The 56-foot aircraft is designed as a commuter plane with room for nine passengers and a cruise speed of more than 250 miles per hour.By Collin Krabbe – Albuquerque Business First

The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation (the Foundation) releases the August 2021 Monthly Confidence Index for the Equipment Finance Industry (MCI-EFI). The index reports a qualitative assessment of both the prevailing business conditions and expectations for the future as reported by key executives from the $900 billion equipment finance sector. Overall, confidence in the equipment finance market is 66.6, a decrease from the July index of 72.9. When asked about the outlook for the future, MCI-EFI survey respondent Dave Fate, Chief Executive Officer, Stonebriar Commercial Finance, said, “I have been optimistic on the near and long-term future of the equipment leasing and finance industry. As was proven out during 2020, secured loans and leases always outperform all other asset classes. In my opinion that will never change. My only concerns are things outside of our control, such as the potential increase in tax rates and the political landscape that exists today both at the federal and state levels.” August 2021 Survey Results: The overall MCI-EFI is 66.6, a decrease from the July index of 72.9. • When asked to assess their business conditions over the next four months, 35.7% of executives responding said they believe business conditions will improve over the next four months, down from 58.6% in July. 64.3% believe business conditions will remain the same over the next four months, up from 41.4% the previous month. None believe business conditions will worsen, unchanged from July. • 32.1% of the survey respondents believe demand for leases and loans to fund capital expenditures (capex) will increase over the next four months, down from 55.2% in July. 67.9% believe demand will “remain the same” during the same four-month time period, an increase from 41.4% the previous month. None believe demand will decline, down from 3.5% in July. • 28.6% of the respondents expect more access to capital to fund equipment acquisitions over the next four months, down from 37.9% in July. 71.4% of executives indicate they expect the “same” access to capital to fund business, an increase from 62.1% last month. None expect “less” access to capital, unchanged from the previous month. • When asked, 35.7% of the executives report they expect to hire more employees over the next four months, down from 37.9% in July. 64.3% expect no change in headcount over the next four months, an increase from 62.1% last month.

Superior Fishing Accessories Manufactured With Haas Machine Tools Dave Davis is a fisherman who happens to also be an e n t r e p r e n e u r. And so, when O E M M e rc u r y M a r i n e , manufacturer of a complete line of boat outboards, met the marine environmental regulations with a complete fourstroke outboard Dave Fishing line of motors, Dave, and good friend Mike Brillhart, recognized a void in the market. Fishing boat accessories were available in abundance for two-stroke outboard boats, but not so in the new four-stroke outboard line. “Once Mercury Marine made the big change to four-stroke engines, there were limited options for transom savers and motor totes on the newest engines.” For non-boat enthusiasts, a transom saver is a device that protects your boat’s transom from stress or eventual damage from forces exerted on it by the weight of the outboard while you are trailering it. ... It is a bar that extends from the outboard to your trailer. A motor toter helps you protect your investment while towing a boat – both on the highway and off-road – by keeping the outboard motor from bouncing and jostling. This kind of movement can inflict collateral damage to your engine’s steering cables, hydraulic lines, housing, and finishing. Dave Davis is a serial entrepreneur, having started 4 businesses and partnership in another, some of which sold once their explosive growth made them highly attractive to investors. This apparent void in the four-stroke marine outboard market was the impetus for Dave’s newest business, called DD26. That plus there was a wife and 3 little girls at home A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

who needed Dave to get out of the house and back out into business after selling his latest business venture. “I named my new business ‘DD26 FISHING’ for a few reasons. First, DD for my initials and the ‘26’ was my football jersey number and secondly, I come from a family of military members, the USS Perkins DD26 represents Brett, Dave and Ellison Machinery’s Alex a battleship Anderson; the DD26 Team that was used in World War 1.” The South Carolina (Battleship #26) was commissioned on March 1, 1910, and during World War I, she trained sailors, participated in escort duty, and brought 4,000 veterans back to the United States escorting various ships including those of Presidents Grant and Washington. Through experience, Dave recognized that his company would need to design its own products to really create barriers to entry and to ensure his business success. Dave is also a marketeer and salesperson who has an uncanny ability to gauge what the marketplace wants. “We offer a number of fishing boat products and accessories”, Dave says, “from steering locks and motor totes, which are a very large part of our business, to a line of clothes, tournament scales, engine covers and fishing lid sticks/props.” He adds, “We offer our manufactured products in high quality 6061 aluminum and almost always in 8 different colors, so a fisherman with a lime green boat can purchase DD26 accessories in lime green.” The company’s products are powder coated with a high quality automotive grade powder coating process, that like every aspect of their product manufacturing, is superior to those of its competitors. Dave says that DD26’s products are ‘10x overbuilt’, they are all branded, and while this makes their products more costly to build, it is also what differentiates DD26 products in the marketplace. “Our products should outlast your boat”, he quips. Dave has years of experience in the semiconductor industry, but these years were spent in marketing and sales positions. “I am not, nor will I ever be, a machinist”, he says. In the early years of business, Dave developed relationships with a couple of key machine shop owners, including Dave Shano, owner of Precision Billet Products and Bret Balcerzak, owner of CNC City. “These 2 companies have been invaluable to us in the early years where we were designing our new products, and they will likely always be a part of our

Dave and Alex

business. Bret was so integral in helping to design our parts for manufacturing, and our plan is that as we migrate products to production, we will feed CNC City our newest R&D/Prototype products.”

Both CNC City and Precision Billet have a substantial number of Haas machines, so Dave knew they would be superior machines when he made the decision to bring some manufacturing inhouse. Dave says, “I have another personal experience with Haas that just elevated my respect for them as a company. When I was with one of my previous businesses, an LED manufacturer, we were bidding on some lighting for the Haas machines. As part of the due diligence, I toured the Haas factory in Oxnard, CA. I came away in awe of their manufacturing operations, and even more so because they design and manufacture their machine tools here in the United States.” Just over a year ago, Dave was introduced to Alex Anderson, Business Manager for Ellison Machinery. “Alex was a big help when we made the decision to purchase our first Haas machines, a pair of VF-2SS vertical mills.” Since then, the company purchased an additional VF-2SS vertical mill with an HRT210SS 4th axis rotary and have a new VF-4SS on the way. Dave says that it was CNC City’s Bret who orchestrated the introduction between Dave and Alex. Alex says, “The fastest way to increase the productivity of your Haas mill is to add a 4th-axis rotary. Rotaries reduce the number of setups needed and drastically increase throughput.” Alex says that DD26 added this 4th axis capability to increase output for their production parts. To fully utilize their 4th axis, DD26 added a trunnion table to their rotary with 2 vises per side. Dave says that they have shaved massive amounts off the time of their operations with the trunnion. “On one particular part, we’ve gone from 56 minutes to make the part down to 29 minutes. Also, with multiple operations it could take 1 to 1.5 weeks before we’d send the parts to powder coat- we had to finish the entire batch first. Now, we are making fully completed parts with less operations, and we are sending 75-100 parts out every day to be powder coated.” Business is exceptional at DD26 and the company continues to grow its machine shop. Dave says, “We continue to work closely with Alex to determine the best machines to add to our business.; he is instrumental in helping me feel comfortable as I make new machine tool purchases. We’ve launched more than 200 new SKUs in less than 2 years, and we lean on Alex not just for

understanding the new products we will be machining, but for helping to select the new machines and options we need.” The team at DD26 just ordered their 4th Haas machine, a VF-4SS Vertical machining center. Dave says the VF4SS, with its larger travels (50” X by 20” Y x 25” Z) will allow some of DD26’s larger parts currently outsourced to be machined in-house. Dave says, “We want all DD26 p ro d u c t s t o b e as high quality and aesthetically pleasing as your $80,000 bass boat.” Alex adds, “I am i m p re s s e d w i t h DD26’s productstheir design, appearance, and even the packaging screams quality.” To l e a r n m o r e about DD26 fishing accessories, visit: Mean Mount Motor Totes and or call 480-849- Mean Mean Stop Hydraulic 7757.

Intel To Make Chips For Amazon, Qualcomm, Lays Out Product Roadmap Through 2025 Intel unveiled two heavy-hitting customers for its new foundry business. A m a z o n We b Services and rival fabless chipmaker Qualcomm are lined up for Intel’s cuttingedge products in 2025. These customers for Intel Foundry Services, a new business unit created earlier this year, were revealed during a tech-heavy presentation by CEO Pat Gelsinger and company technologists who outlined Intel’s roadmap to regain its leadingedge chipmaking crown. Gelsinger told industry analysts that Intel expects to gain parity on process manufacturing with rivals in 2024 and take a leadership position in 2025, when the company will manufacture on an atomic level. Wall Street investors likely weren’t pleased to hear the time frame for A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

regaining leadership. The stock was down in afterhours trading more than 2%. Gelsinger also introduced a new naming system for the different process nodes, stepping away from the nanometer nomenclature the company has used and instead adopting one that could better illustrate product improvements between the generations of manufacturing process. Historically, Intel and the industry have named manufacturing process and products by the nanometer size of the gates between transistors. He told analysts that gate size hasn’t been accurate as nodes have gotten smaller but speed and efficiency has still increased. This is how different generations of chips from different companies can get confusing. For instance, the 10nm chip from Intel is roughly equivalent to the 7nm chip from others. Following the current 10nm node, that Intel is shipping, the company will shift to Intel 7 (which was formerly the third generation of 10nm), then Intel 4 (which was formerly called 7nm), then Intel 3 and then the introduction of Intel 20A.

The shift pleased at least one analyst. Patrick Moorhead, president of Moor Insights and Strategy, wrote in a blog post he hopes it will make comparisons easier. “I’m hopeful we’ll move away from ‘smaller meaning faster’ is innovation, which isn’t necessarily the case, and toward ‘efficiency and density,’ including packaging more defines innovation,” he wrote. Intel 7 is slated to ship in 2021 with Alder Lake for PCs, then Sapphire Rapids in the first quarter of 2022 for the data center, said Ann Kelleher, senior vice president and general manager of technology development. Intel 4 will be ready for production in the second half of 2022 and products shipping in 2023.

Ann Kelleher, senior vice president and general manager of technology development at Intel, helped lay out the company’s roadmap. Kelleher noted that Intel 4 will be the first product to fully embrace extreme ultraviolet lithography. Intel 3 is slated for manufacturing in the second half of 2023 and products available in 2024. Intel’s less-than-full embrace of EUV for production was considered a key cause of manufacturing delays in recent years, contributing to its stumble from the top of process leadership. Kelleher and other technologists noted that Intel is working closely with Dutch company ASML, which makes EUV machines, to ensure Intel has access to the machines needed for capacity and also access to advances in that technology. ASML recently announced it is moving its Chandler office and plans to hire 100 additional people in the coming years. Its offices will move to 2625 W.

Intel’s largest manufacturing site in the world is in Chandler, where it employs 12,000 people. The company plans to increase its Valley headcount by 3,000 as it adds two new manufacturing facilities, known as fabs, in a $20 billion expansion. “Building on Intel’s unquestioned leadership in advanced packaging, we are accelerating our innovation roadmap to ensure we are on a clear path to process performance leadership by 2025,” Gelsinger said during the event. “We are leveraging our unparalleled pipeline of innovation to deliver technology advances from the transistor up to the system level.” Intel 20A is the start of the angstrom era, Gelsinger said. An angstrom is a unit of measurement smaller than a nanometer. Intel 20A, the process node on which Qualcomm and Intel Foundry Services are working, is expected in the first half of 2024. Gelsinger told analysts the San Diego-based mobile chipmaker has done deep due diligence on Intel’s 20A product. By Malia Spencer – Portland Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

AEM Says 500K Manufacturing Jobs Possible If Infrastructure Bill Passes


billion in new federal, state, and local tax revenue from the equipment manufacturing industry, and result in an additional $27 billion in overall economic output,” added Eideberg. CY



A new report, released by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), determined that more than 100,000 family-sustaining equipment manufacturing jobs can be created over the next three years. Research done by HIS Markit showed that the jobs, which will mostly be located in rural areas, will pay $88,000. That is a 35% increase over the current average pay. This number is based on the passage of the Surface Transportation Reauthorization Act of 2021 in the Fall of 2021. Furthermore, the study assumes that three-quarters of the spending taking place during the first five years. “The bipartisan infrastructure framework agreed to by the White House and a group of Senators, coupled with a five-year surface transportation reauthorization, is vital for the 2.8 million men and women of the equipment manufacturing industry, for their families and communities, for the U.S. economy, and for bipartisanship in this country,” said Kip Eideberg, AEM senior vice president of government and industry relations, in a statement. “The data shows that it would also create nearly 500,000 new manufacturing jobs overall, generate over $2 A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Other findings from the report include: •

From 2022-2024 equipment manufacturers and supporting, industries will generate over $27B in output as a result of the proposed investments.

This investment will also result in $2.25 billion in additional taxes paid to federal, state, local governments before the end of President Biden’s first term by the equipment manufacturing industry and their supporting industries.

The full American Jobs Program (AJP), as proposed in early 2021, suggest that the ramp-up in spending could raise GDP growth by between 0.2 and 0.4 percentage point from 2022 through 2024—enough to lift the level of GDP about 1% above our baseline forecast by 2024 and push the unemployment rate below 3%—before the effects reverse.

Bridgerland Technical College, Utah Gene Haas Foundation dignitaries were welcomed to Bridgerland Technical College this past May to commemorate the donation of a $250,000 grant utilized in remodeling the Machining Technology department, classrooms, and laboratory. Wes Chambers, Department Head of the Machining Technology program, commented, “Thanks to the generous grant from the Gene Haas Foundation, we were able to update the lab to make it function more like the local machine shops, which really elevates the hands-on training the students get to enjoy in this program.” Vance Briggs, High School Instructor for the Machining Technology program, said, “What I’m most excited about has been the expansion of the classroom. We have increased our class space and the computers by 50%, which I am excited about. It will allow me to let in students in who may have previously been turned away because of lack of space.” During the event, the Gene Haas Foundation also donated an additional $30,000 in scholarship money to be utilized by students in the Machining Technology program. Frank Stewart, Chief Development Officer, said, “The impact and influence that Mr. Gene Haas has had for both high school and college students in technical education and machining specifically is exponential. Scholarships and equipment support give our students a big leg up in gaining their education and a rewarding career.”

Central New Mexico Community College, New Mexico In August, 10 hard-working students in CNM’s Machine Tool Technology program were awarded the Gene Haas Scholarship. The Gene Haas Scholarship is awarded to students who are enrolled in a machine program and who have a 3.0 GPA or higher. Winners each get $1,650.

Community College of Denver Celebrates Their Check

The CNM students received their scholarships during a small ceremony where they got to meet with Danny White who has worked with Haas for 27 years. “If it weren’t for Danny, we wouldn’t know about the scholarship and therefore, wouldn’t have it. We’re very appreciative,” says Marcel Hesch, an instructor in CNM’s Machine Tool program. Many of the students have exciting futures in front of them. Lucas Varela, one of the scholarship winners, is starting an apprenticeship at Sandia Labs and credits both CNM and faculty member Marcel Hersch for his success.

Fewer Working-Age People May Slow Economy. Will It Lift Pay? As America’s job market rebounds this summer and the need for workers intensifies, employers won’t likely have a chance to relax anytime soon. Worker shortages will likely persist for years after the fast-reopening economy shakes off its growing pains. Consider that the number of working age people did something last year it had never done in the nation’s history: It shrank. Estimates from the Census Bureau showed that the U.S. population ages 16 through 64 fell 0.1% in 2020 — a scant drop but the first decline of any kind after decades of steady increases. It reflected a sharp fall in immigration, the retirements of the vast baby boom generation and a slowing birth rate. The size of the 16-64 age group was also diminished last year by thousands of deaths from the coronavirus. A year earlier, in 2019, the working age population had essentially plateaued. It’s not entirely clear how population patterns will unfold once the pandemic fully fades. A continuing drop in that population, or even a tepid increase, would pose a problem for the economy. A healthy economic expansion has always depended on robust population growth to fuel consumer spending, justify business expansion and drive corporate earnings. Without a sizable influx of new workers, growth could stagnate. Still, some economists foresee a silver lining for individuals: Fewer people of working age could compel companies to compete harder to hire and retain employees. And that could mean higher pay, better opportunities and other inducements to keep and attract workers, A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

a trend already evident in the June jobs report the government released Friday. Average hourly pay rose a hefty 3.6% compared with a year ago, faster than the pre-pandemic pace. “The workers would be doing better than the economy as a whole,” said Manoj Pradhan, founder of an economics research firm. If wages were to rise sharply, it could also help narrow the vast inequality that has increasingly divided the most affluent Americans from everyone else and left the lowestincome households struggling to afford rent, food, child care and other essential expenses. With population growth sluggish, economic expansion would hinge on whether companies could make their workers more productive. An increase in productivity, often made through investments in labor-saving technology, could raise pay. Living standards would rise even if the economy struggled to grow at what’s normally considered a healthy pace. Last year, the number of legal and unauthorized immigrants entering the United States fell for a fourth straight year to below 500,000 — less than half the level in 2016 — according to calculations by William Frey, from the Brookings Institution. The number of deaths jumped 8%, to above 3 million, reflecting largely the impact of the pandemic. A fundamental long-term drag on the working-age population is the exit of the enormous baby boom generation from the labor force. The number of people ages 65 and over will likely jump 30% over the next decade, Frey said. “We’ve never really been in this type of situation before,” he said. “There’s just not enough (young adults) to replace people who are leaving.” The situation has been exacerbated this year by a spate of early retirements. Roughly 2.6 million people who were working before the pandemic now say they’re retired

and not searching for a job. Sharp gains in stock prices and home values despite the deep pandemic recession made it easier for many older Americans to leave the workforce early. Gad Levanon, an economist at the Conference Board, said the drop in the working age population will be particularly evident among Americans without college degrees. As aging baby boomers retire, they’re being replaced by younger workers who are likelier to be college graduates. Blue-collar workers — anyone without a fouryear degree — will become scarcer. That trend will likely create labor shortages in such industries as manufacturing, construction, retail and restaurants and hotels. Levanon estimates that the number of college graduates will keep growing about 2% a year, despite the population slowdown, while non-college degree holders will dwindle. This could make it harder for future college grads to find jobs commensurate with their education levels. Companies may also inflate their job requirements, perhaps demanding bachelor’s degrees for jobs that didn’t require them before. “The number of people who are willing to work in blue collar and manual service jobs is shrinking,” Levanon said. Pay is already rising faster for lower-wage workers. For the lowestpaid 25% of employees, hourly wages rose 4.2% in May compared with a year earlier, according to the Federal Reserve Bank. That’s more than twice the percentage raises that these workers received in the four years after the Great Recession, from 2010 through 2014, and higher than the richest one-quarter of workers.

Globally, workforces in most other countries are also aging, including in China, which once seemed to offer an inexhaustible supply of workers. Japan’s population has shrunk for a decade. Pradhan said that trend could potentially benefit American workers. Since the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s, hundreds of millions of people in China, Eastern Europe and India have joined the global workforce, thereby holding down wages for lower-skilled workers and keeping prices in check. Now, the aging of much of the world could reverse those trends, Pradhan and Charles Goodhart, wrote in a book titled, “The Great Demographic Reversal: Ageing Societies, Waning Inequality, and an Inflation Revival.” Pradhan notes that in Japan, whose population has declined about 1% year for a decade, economic growth has averaged just 1% annually. But that means growth per person has been 2%. If the United States could achieve that level of efficiency while its population grows just 0.5% a year, its economy could still expand at a healthy 2.5% annually, Pradhan said. Still, over time, he and other economists worry that sluggish population growth could mean less consumer spending and a less dynamic economy. “Workers generate innovation and ideas — they invent things,” said Kasey Buckles, an economics professor at the University of Notre Dame. “When you have a dwindling working-age population, you have fewer people doing that.” Source: AP; By: Christopher Rugaber

Intel’s Mobileye Testing Self-Driving Cars On New York City Streets Intel Corp.’s self-driving car technology unit released a 40-minute unedited video last month of a vehicle successfully navigating busy New York City streets. Mobileye, the business unit creating this technology, is now testing its vehicles in New York including Manhattan, the company said. It’s the latest city for the Israel-based business to test its tech. It has also driven in Munich, Germany, Tokyo and Detroit; as well as cities in Israel and China. The company confirmed a human driver is always in the driver seat during the testing and can override the car if needed. Mobileye has tested in New York city for six weeks. Mobileye, which makes advanced driver assist systems, already powers millions of vehicles that offer human drivers alerts coming from sensors that can trigger automatic braking or maintaining a lane. Intel bought the company for $15.3 billion in 2017. The company uses two independent systems for computer vision redundancy to power its autonomous driving: One uses 12 cameras embedded in the vehicle and the other A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

The company received autonomous vehicle permits from the state of New York to test its vehicles on city streets in both daytime and night time conditions. Mobileye’s vehicles have had to navigate traffic, pedestrians, tunnels and bridges, aggressive driving and everything else New York City can throw at it. Mobileye has been a bright spot for Intel’s business. Last year, it had revenue of $967 million, up 10% year-over-year. In the company’s most recent quarter it had revenue of $377 million, up 48% from the same quarter a year ago. By Malia Spencer – Portland Business Journal

Department of Labor Reviewing Overtime Rule The Department of Labor (DoL) is reviewing the overtime exemption rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act, to increase the minimum salary threshold for workers to qualify for overtime pay when working more than 40 hours per week. DoL is considering increasing the threshold to $50,000 with regular increases, higher than the revision passed by the Obama Administration. Obama finalized the overtime exemption rule in 2016, more than doubling the threshold from $23,660 to $47,476 per year for Executive, Administrative, Professional & Clerical Employees (EAP) and for highly compensated workers from $100,000 to $134,000. One Voice was part of a business coalition lawsuit against the rule, which was ultimately blocked from implementation by the courts. The Trump administration then issued their own rule setting the threshold for EAP employees at $35,568 annually and $107,432 per year for highly compensated employees.

these “cutting-edge companies,” Ornstein remains realistic about all these investments working out. “We’re making investments in technology. Some of the technology will work, some may not,” Ornstein said. “But we’re basically going to be out there as a leader so that we can determine first what we think is going to be successful.” Mesa is not just putting all its eggs in the electric aircraft basket. The company continues to try new operations and so far, they have been successful.

Mesa Air CEO Looking For Even More Electric Aircraft Investments Phoenix-based regional airline Mesa Air Group has already invested in two separate electric aircraft startups, but its CEO said it is looking into other clean aircraft technology as well. Jonathan Ornstein, the chairman and CEO of Mesa Air, said the investments in new electric aircraft technology are not only good for the environment, but also makes sense on the business side. Mesa’s main business is being a regional airline that operates flights from American Airlines and United Airlines, but Ornstein is under the mindset that the airline industry is changing, and he wants to be leading the change instead of catching up. In July, Mesa committed to buy 100 19-seat electric airplanes from Swedish aircraft manufacturer Heart Aerospace and in February it invested to purchase electric “air taxis” from Silicon Valley startup Archer. Both investments were made alongside with United Airlines (Nasdaq: UAL). The hope is that Mesa would operate these vehicles for commercial use under the United umbrella. “We would frankly love to expand our partnerships with our other partner, American Airlines, if possible,” he said. “There is a lot of interesting technology out there today. I’ve continued to visit companies. I actually visited a company today that was very exciting.” A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

In 2020, Mesa started making cargo flights for DHL. Mesa is getting another plane for that operation and hopes it continues to grow in the future. Mesa also is looking to start flying in Europe in a joint venture with Tony Davis, the former CEO of low-cost international carriers Tiger Airways and Bmibaby. Mesa Air President Mike Lotz said the European flights will start during the first three months of 2022. Ornstein said that Covid has decimated many European carriers and routes and the market is prime for someone like Mesa fill in the gaps. “We believe our DHL cargo flying and our European growth plans are just a start as we continue to look for and pursue new growth opportunities,” Ornstein said.

Intel lands deal that could help U.S. solve its semiconductor problem Intel Corp. said it has been awarded a Pentagon contract f o r foundry that’s part of a program to bolster semiconductor

manufacturing in the United States. The Santa Clarabased chip giant said that it will join International B u s i n e s s Machines Corp., Synopsys Inc., Cadence Design Systems Inc. and others in the RAMP-C program — short for Rapid Assured Microelectronics Prototypes-Commercial. It’s a program designed to make sure the U.S. chipbuilding ecosystem is adequate to meet the long-term needs of the government and defense department. The Biden Administration’s defense budget for 2022 includes a request for $2.3 billion for microelectronics efforts deemed critical to long-term national security amid a global semiconductor shortage. About three quarters of the world’s chip manufacturing capacity today is in China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, led by Samsung Electronics Co. and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Nearly all of the world’s advanced semiconductor manufacturing capacity is in South Korea and Taiwan. The contract announced this week will support Intel Foundry Services, a unit the company launched as a standalone division this year to produce both its own chips and those which use other architectures. The company plans to spend about $20 billion to build out two new factories at its Ocotillo Campus in Chandler — its largest site in the world — for this effort, with planning and construction activities coming later this year. When complete, the company’s workforce in Chandler is expected to grow from the current 12,000 to 15,000. Intel’s newest factory, Fab 42, became fully operational in 2020 on the company’s Ocotillo campus in Chandler, Arizona. In March 2021, Intel announced a $20 billion investment to build out two new factories (or “fabs”) on the Ocotillo campus.

Raytheon and the U.S. Navy complete testing on the Enterprise Air Surveillance Radar, or EASR Not so long ago, the U.S. Navy’s two newest radars were nothing more than ideas. One would rotate. The other would stand still. Together, they would cover the skies nonstop, helping the Navy defend its ships, conduct air traffic control and increase its overall situational awareness. Now, the SPY-6(V)2 rotating radar and the SPY-6(V)3

fixed-face radar – known together as EASR, or Enterprise Air Surveillance Radar – have completed testing and are about ready to deploy. The Navy and Raytheon Missiles and Defense conducted testing at the Surface Combat System Center at Wallops Island, Virginia. The tests focused on anti-air warfare and air traffic control capabilities, weather operations, and power systems for both radars. The EASR will replace single-function legacy radars and improve range and performance. The radars are part of the SPY-6 family – a group of advanced naval sensors that can find and track targets such as fighter jets, cruise missiles and ballistic missiles, all while resisting interference from the environment, like high waves on rough seas. Engineers used lessons learned from earlier SPY-6 radars such as the AMDR, or Air and Missile Defense Radar, to develop the new EASR variants quickly. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Air Force Research Laboratory In Albuquerque Seeks Business Partners To Help Build ‘Drone Hammer’ The Air Force Research Laboratory in Albuquerque is seeking directed e n e r g y companies to help build what it calls a “drone hammer.” The technology will be used to defend against unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones. The instrument will utilize technology previously used for an instrument called the Tactical High-Power Operational Responder — or THOR — which uses bursts of “intense radio waves” to disable small drones quickly. The new prototype will use the same technology but is being designed to be more capable and reliable. “We are releasing an opportunity for businesses in the directed energy field, to help us build the follow on system,” said Adrian Lucero, a program manager for the THOR project. ”AFRL’s goal is to create a blueprint for our partners so these systems can be economically produced in large quantities, and to grow a fledgling industry.” The program is set to begin in the fall with a prototype weapon being delivered in 2023. A request for proposal for firms interested in working with the AFRL to develop the prototype is available on The AFRL has made a concerted effort locally to increase its work with private companies. Securing government contracts is big business in Albuquerque, with major engineering firms such as Northrop Grumman and others smaller companies present. In addition to the Air Force, Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratory are two major sources of government contracts in New Mexico. Since 2019, the Air Force has supported at least two startup accelerators with other local organizations. The latest, called the Soft Landing Space Tech Cohort, begins in October at the Q Station in Nob Hill, which will provide entrepreneurs with inroads to leadership at the U.S. Space Command. Q Station is designed to allow aerospace, directed energy and related tech companies to work with government entities and private industry. The New Mexico Trade Alliance is Q Station’s manager and is funding its programming with a $750,000 SPRINT grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.By Collin Krabbe – Albuquerque Business First A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

FTC Increases ‘Made in USA’ Enforcement In July, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) finalized a rule increasing the enforcement of the accurate labeling of products “Made in USA.” Under the finalized rule, companies that incorrectly use “Made in USA” or “Made in America” labels will be subject to fines of as much as $43,280 for every violation. The rule, which requires marketers that use the “Made in US” label to prove that their products are “all or virtually all” made in the United States, does not impose any new requirements on businesses but rather codifies existing FTC guidance on U.S.-origin claims on labels. Under the rule, marketers are prohibited from making unqualified claims on labels unless the final assembly or processing of the product occurs in the U.S., all significant processing that goes into the product occurs in the U.S., and all or virtually all ingredients or components of the product are made and sourced in the U.S.

How States Can Recover From Pandemic: Focus on Workforce Development The country is slowly bouncing back from the devasting economic impact of the coronavirus shutdown, but recovery is uneven across several regions and threatens to leave millions behind if localities can’t better equip their workforces for the reviving labor market. States struggling the most to get their sea legs include Washington, Minnesota, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania, according to a recent June assessment, with New Jersey, California, Connecticut, New Mexico, and New York among A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

those battling high unemployment rates. The difficulty many states are experiencing is a trend that was underway before the pandemic struck. In early 2020, the National Skills Coalition reported 52 percent of jobs require training beyond high school, but less than a bachelor’s degree. Yet only 43 percent of workers were receiving relevant training. Similarly, back in 2019, IBM had estimated that approximately 54 percent of all employees would require significant reskilling or upskilling. Now, during COVID recovery, the mismatch between employer needs and the available labor force is even more front and center and a major obstacle to economic recovery. “Today, many communities lack appropriate education and job-training programs that align with employers’ needs and shifts in the labor market,” said a new report by the organization I lead, the International Economic Development Council (IEDC). The troubling mismatch is underscored by the latest employment outlook survey,

which found nearly 70 percent of firms globally are having difficulties hiring skilled workers. Attracting investment from companies is critical if regions are to fully recover from the devastation wrought by the pandemic shutdown. That will require states to engage with local economic development agencies which in turn can help nurture workforce talent to better match employer needs. Several regions are exemplars in this effort and highlight a way forward for others to consider. The Ohio to Work initiative was launched last September as a pilot program in Cleveland. The effort brings together JobsOhio’s network partners, nonprofits, the Urban League of Greater Cleveland, and an array of employers to support workers displaced from jobs during the pandemic. This includes linking workers to jobs through evaluation tools and coaching and providing workers with a mix of accelerated training and financing. Community Colleges can provide a powerful tool for retraining a local workforce. Last September, Alabama was one of eight states to win a $17.8 million Reimagine Workforce Preparation grant through the coronavirus relief bill. The Alabama partners are delivering training programs over three years to ensure a robust workforce pipeline and to better match employer needs. Apprenticeships also are helping offset the impact of the pandemic, and they are gaining ground as tools to enhance economic opportunity. In just one powerful example, Dallas College in Texas has a goal of creating 50,000 apprentices by 2030 in key sectors like construction, healthcare, IT, manufacturing, and logistics. In 2021, the college began a partnership

with Amazon to offer apprenticeships for in-demand jobs such as robotics and mechatronics. Technology such as improved broadband access is a major focus for some regions during the recovery period because it plays an outsized role in helping workers gain skills and allowing states to attract new residents and businesses. For example, under a new remote worker program unveiled in West Virginia, out-of-state participants who move to the state receive a full relocation package valued at more than $20,000. More than 9 million Americans are currently unemployed. The lack of marketable skills is a big part of the problem, but no means the only one. Others include a dearth of childcare options and insufficient wages offered by some potential employers, the IEDC report found. All the more reason why it will take economic development acuity at the regional level to win business investment, get people back to work, and better prepared for the careers of the future.
