ZAGO Manufacturing, the Newark, New Jersey-based producer of high-tech clean sealing solutions and components, is pleased to announce that its vice president Gail Friedberg-Rottenstrich has been appointed to the Board of Trustees, New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP), and named to the New Jersey Policy Academy Home Team, effective immediately.
“It is an honor to join the NJMEP Board of Trustees and the New Jersey Policy Academy Home Team, says Friedberg-Rottenstrich. “It’s a privilege to collaborate with multi-faceted stakeholders who are passionate about advancing and sustaining manufacturing in the Garden State.”
For Ms. Friedberg-Rottenstrich, who serves as the Deputy Mayor of New Jersey’s Fair Lawn Borough, the opportunity to work alongside policymakers and the business community to bolster economic development is a natural fit. “In order to effectuate positive, lasting change, it is critical that the manufacturing industry consider the perspectives of multiple stakeholders, and that includes policymakers.”
As a participant on the New Jersey Policy Academy Home Team, Ms. Friedberg-Rottenstrich will offer strategic insight on issues related to New Jersey manufacturers and those related to energy efficiency and sustainability. ZAGO Manufacturing produces inherently green custom sealing solutions and components and fully utilizes solar energy to power its production facility in Newark. It is an approved sustainable business certified by the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry.
The New Jersey Policy Academy Home Team represents one of four states selected by the Policy Academy for Strengthening Your State’s Manufacturers, a new initiative designed to help states tap and build upon existing strategies, resources and infrastructure in order to bolster manufacturing within their state.
The New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program is a non-for-profit company that works with New Jersey’s small to mid-sized manufacturers to help them become more efficient, profitable and globally competitive. Since its inception, NJMEP has assisted thousands of manufacturers with strengthening and streamlining operations and enhancing global innovation and workforce development. There are over 11,000 manufacturers based in New Jersey today.
In 2017, NJMEP named ZAGO Manufacturing “Manufacturer of the Year (Small Manufacturer)” at its annual New Jersey Manufacturing Day celebration.
