Tegra Medical was honored as a products leader in the first annual Massachusetts Manufacturing Caucus Awards. The award ceremony took place at the Massachusetts State House in Boston on October 26, 2016 with chairmen Senator Eric Lesser and Representative John Fernandes.
In addition to being chosen for the products category, the company was recognized in the ceremony program for contributing to the state’s economy with its strong growth, the addition of more than 50 jobs to the Massachusetts economy just this year, and its continued dedication to local charities.
Formed in 2014, the Manufacturing Caucus aims to increase the competitiveness of Massachusetts manufacturing by providing legislative support. The caucus includes more than 50 legislators from around Massachusetts. Its work includes a focus on training for manufacturing employees, encouraging innovation by helping start-ups access resources, and expanding apprenticeship opportunities in key manufacturing sectors.
State Representative Jeffrey Roy nominated Tegra Medical for this prestigious award. Roy represents the 10th Norfolk District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. He has been an active member of the Manufacturing Caucus since its founding and has been a vocal proponent for manufacturing since taking office in 2013.
