Actron was pleased to have the opportunity to be a small business sponsor and participate in the 6th annual Florida Defense Expo recently held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel and Exposition Center in Orlando, Florida on Feb 20, 2018. Actron joined other small businesses, prime contractors, and government and industry officials sharing thoughts, ideas, and capabilities regarding the important role the defense industry plays in supporting our brave war fighters and our country. Actron has been an active member in the FDCA since its inception and has participated in every Defense Expo held to date.
We had the opportunity to meet and have discussions with many industry primes such as Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Northrup Grumman, the Boeing Company, and Embraer as well as our fellow small businesses such as EEI Manufacturing Services, McCormick-Stevenson, SmartSat, and others.
In addition to industry representatives and several informative panels of experts discussing the current state of the defense industry in Florida, a well-represented, bipartisan group of members of the US House of Representatives including the Honorable(s) Charlie Crist, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Darren Soto, John Rutherford, Stephanie Murphy, and Mario Diaz-Balart. All of these representatives expressed the importance of maintaining a healthy defense industry and ensuring the safety of American citizens.
Actron looks forward to being a part of the 7th annual defense expo in 2019.
