As part of Rhode Island Manufacturing Week and his ongoing program to visit area businesses, Congressman James Langevin visited Astra Nova just over the Warwick line in West Warwick Tuesday afternoon. The manufacturer of data visualization technology employs 250 in Rhode Island and is a major supplier of highly technical high-speed printers used in aircraft. Langevin said he is amazed by the “talented people” he’s met on his business tours and that the experience has reinforced his belief that “manufacturing is not dead; it has become advanced and high tech. We need to get the word out to many young people that this is an option.” As part of the tour, Langevin asked employees where they had graduated. At Astra Nova he found graduates of New England Institute of Technology, CCRI and the Coventry Career and Technical Center. Explaining the functions of a device that monitors various systems to the congressman are Daniel Ricci, Alex Lamake and the company’s president and CEO Gregory Woods. (Warwick Beacon photo)
