ANDOVER, Mass., April 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a technology company that delivers processing power for the most demanding aerospace and defense missions, on Friday hosted U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and a group of manufacturing business leaders for an event at its Phoenix facility.

The event, organized by the Arizona Manufacturers Council and the National Association of Manufacturers, focused on U.S. manufacturing competitiveness and workforce. Sen. Sinema led a roundtable discussion around policies needed to ensure workforce availability for critical domestic aerospace and defense manufacturers. She also toured the Mercury production facility, which is one of the few domestic sources of secure, advanced packaging for semiconductors that are used in a wide range of military platforms. Representatives from Intel, ASM, EMD Electronics, Dexcom, and Arizona State University also participated in the event.

“Mercury was delighted to host Senator Sinema and global technology manufacturing leaders for this important conversation,” said Tom Smelker, Mercury’s Vice President and General Manager of Microsystems. “The vast majority of advanced semiconductor packaging is done in southeast Asia today, and the United States recognizes the need for more secure domestic capacity. But our skilled labor workforce is constrained, and we need a faster path to bring in more talent.”

“As I travel across Arizona, I hear from employers of all sizes about the challenges they face filling jobs–this is especially true in the manufacturing sector,” said Sen. Sinema. “That is why I’ve been hard at work identifying realistic solutions.”
