Hassan’s Innovate NH tour takes her to Salem firm
“It’s kind of a niche market,” Hawekotte told the governor. “But right now, we’re the world’s largest manufacturer of these products. And we’ve quickly outgrown this building we’re in. ”
He noted that many of his employees have been with the company for a decade or longer, but as the company grows it has been difficult to secure new staff with the necessary skills to create GSSI’s unique products.
The GPR products, which were historically used in geophysical applications, have more recently found a niche in the commercial marketplace. The company’s largest market is in concrete engineering, company officials said.
Hassan said she’s reaching out to companies like GSSI through a number of recent initiatives, such as the provisions outlined in her Innovate NH jobs plan.
“When fourth-graders come to the statehouse, as they often do, I’m often talking to families about the jobs that are out there,” the governor said. “A lot of times people don’t initially see manufacturing as a possible career path. But I’m hoping we can tailor our curriculum to meet some of those needs.”
“It’s becoming much more onerous for us to manage,” Hawekotte said.
While there’s no immediate remedy for the financial strains presented by rising health care costs, Hassan said she’s “pushing very, very hard” for reimbursement to providers that’s “based on outcome rather than the number of procedures.”
