Will Manufacturing in Delaware Grow this Year?

Is there a chance for Delaware to increase its share of the manufacturing industry?

 

Senator Chris Coons believes so.

 

In fact, he and Senator Kelly Ayotte introduced the Manufacturing Skills Act this year hoping to modernize the way states and cities run their job training programs. The hope is to provide those looking for employment with the skills they’ll need for today’s manufacturing jobs.

According to an article written by Sen. Coons, ‘Manufacturing can be transformed in Delaware’, on Oct. 3, 2015, the skill sets necessary for the manufacturing jobs of today require a higher level of math and engineering than those needed 20 years ago. Many of these manufacturing jobs require two-year college degrees or more. The ability to work in a team environment and higher levels of critical thinking are also required.

While there is a skills gap that has hindered the growth of manufacturers and the economy, ‘Pathways to Prosperity’, a program spearheaded by Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, has helped to train Delaware students. This program has united local high schools, Delaware Tech and local manufacturing companies in a common goal; that of giving Delaware youth the skill sets they’ll need for a career in the manufacturing industry.

10 Tips to Safely Maintain Your Business’ Workplace

Harvey Hanna & Associates’ 10 Tips to Safely Maintain Your Business’ Workplace

Fall has officially arrived and the hot days of summer are quickly becoming a distant memory. Many are wistfully reminiscing of days spent at the shore or hanging with friends on the patio.

Sure, the end of summer can be bittersweet. However, I welcome the briskness of cool autumn days and the vibrant colors of changing leaves as far as the eye can see. It’s a nice change from the hot steamy days of summer.

This time of year is perfect to develop a plan to safely maintain your workplace for the approaching weather challenges ahead. Not that I want to drop the ‘snow’ word, but the reality is that at some point in the next few months we will all have to deal with the mess that snow and ice can leave on sidewalks and parking lots. Not to mention, downed powerlines and inconvenient hazards that can make getting to and from work a challenge.

Now is the perfect time to prepare your business and employees for what lies ahead! I get that, as a business owner, your top priority is running your business. That is why we have created this safety checklist to help make sure you’re ready for the season ahead.

Small Business Saturday in Delaware

Harvey Hanna Welcomes Twin Lakes Brewing Company

Twin Lakes Brewing Company has been offering premium American ales and lagers to the Delaware area for the last 9 years. The company has outgrown the 25 barrel, five vessel brew house and tasting room located at a re-purposed barn on historic Twin Lakes Farm (est. 1826).

That is why Twin Lakes Brewing Co. will be moving from its longtime home in scenic Greenville to one of  Delaware’s most historic (and original) towns in Newport, Delaware – the Newport Industrial Park, which will allow the company to expand it production to 5,000 barrels a year. At the Greenville location, the brewery produced 4,400 barrels last year.

Twin Lakes has suspended it tastings and growler refills until its move to a warehouse located at 405 E. Marsh St, owned by HDC. Inc. and managed by HHA, is complete.

The company hopes to be up and running in September. “We’ve got plenty of kegs, but we’re running low on the cans,” Wick said. “Hopefully, our customers won’t have to wait too long.”—News Journal

According to an article by Scoot Goss of The News Journal,
