I am honored and excited to be chosen as the new Co-Chair of the HIA Manufacturing
Committee along with my friend and Industrial Technology Expert, Kevin Devecioglu.
Between the two of us, we have over 40 years of manufacturing experience (Sikorsky,
Sequana, Oyak Pulp & Paper
amongst others). We have manufacturing in our
blood and are excited about the opportunity to promote, support, and advance
Manufacturing, Distribution and Industrial businesses on Long island through HIA-LI.
As a way to share best practices, identify/matchmake local suppliers/capabilities and
help all the manufacturers and industrial businesses on Long Island to grow and
prosper, we will be hosting benchmarking factory tours, host programs on topics
important to you, create collaboration with other manufacturing support organizations,
promote and seek to strengthen the manufacturing/industrial community on Long Island.
With that in mind, we’d like to invite you to join us on April 11 at 8:30am at the HIA-LI
office, 225 Wireless Boulevard, Hauppauge, NY for a listening session/Town Hall
meeting to hear your ideas on the most important topics you’d like to hear about in
If you’re not available to join us, please send us a return email with your top 3 topics
you’d like to see covered in future meetings.
There is a great pool of talent in the committee that we’d like to draw on, so please
reach out to us and offer your ideas and talents!
Best wishes for continued success and we look forward to seeing you at a future
