Washington, DC – This morning, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) introduced Anne D. Shybunko-Moore, President and Owner of GSE Dynamics Inc., a defense manufacturer providing complex structural assemblies to the United States Air Force, Navy, and Army, at a Senate meeting to discuss ways that Congress can strengthen New York’s local economy and help create jobs. A strong advocate for manufacturing and small businesses on Long Island, Ms. Shybunko-Moore, along with leaders from more than 20 companies and economic development entities from a dozen states which are successfully creating jobs in their communities, met with Senators today at the invitation of the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee to share their success stories.
“Our manufacturers have been amongst those hit the hardest,” said Senator Gillibrand. “And we need a more targeted investment strategy that will help support local economies and create quality jobs. The input from Anne at today’s meeting is critical to ensuring that Congress is strengthening New York’s workforce development and improving ways to better support the backbone of our local economies.”
“A central topic in any discussion of job creation has to be the workforce ‘pipeline,’ which aims to foster the relationship between businesses and higher education, particularly at our community colleges, linking targeted curriculum to meet the needs of current manufacturing and emerging industries,” said Anne Shybunko-Moore, President and Owner of GSE Dynamics Inc. “I was pleased to have the opportunity to share these ideas as Congress continues to evaluate ways to strengthen our economy, and I look forward to working closely with Senator Gillibrand and her colleagues to meet the needs of industry and fill skill gaps so businesses can grow and more people can return to work.”
Small businesses and organizations highlighted how small and medium-sized businesses have continued to create jobs and strengthen economies in their communities, despite a sluggish economy. Today’s forum also included programs that seek to support and strengthen the ability of businesses and sectors within particular areas to grow, granting companies access to the capital and expertise they need to succeed.
GSE Dynamics, Inc. is a woman-owned defense manufacturer that builds, assembles, and tests military structural components for the U.S. Department of Defense. The organization plays an essential role in the nation’s defense and transformation strategies, as its technology contributes to several relevant funded programs. It has been in operation since 1971.
