ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Seven area aerospace companies will be putting Rockford on the map in a few weeks at a global conference.
The local companies will be heading to England starting July 14th for the Farnborough International Airshow. It’s the second largest trade conference in the aerospace industry. The primary focus is for businesses to network and get what other companies have in the works as well.
"The second objective is to market the Rockford region to companies that are looking to establish operations in the United States because of the depth of our regional supply chain and growth that we're seeing in companies such as Woodward,” said Carrie Zethmayr, Executive Director of Trade and Investment.
The trade show will run through Sunday, July 20th.
