Brian Gilman, our CEO, went to a conference of LI businesses to review a new program called the Manufacturing and Technology Resource Consortium (MTRC) in Stony Brook, NY. This event was hosted by Jeff Saelens, Executive Director of MTRC; a non-profit group managed by NYSTAR. MTRC is given $1 million yearly to fund research and development for groups like Gilman Industries. Now armed with proof of our competitive edge, we are pursuing funds to help us create a better containment vessel and more competitive diode systems.
