Manufacturers’ Association Hires Program Manager to Support Recent $6 million Training Grant
(York, PA) –The Manufacturers’ Association appoints a new employee, Quentin Moore, to assume the role of Program Manager for the Talent and Innovation Defense Ecosystem (T.I.D.E) Project, a $6 million grant to train and expand the defense industrial base workforce. The Association, founded in 1906, is the voice of manufacturing for hundreds of member & non-member organizations, supporting manufacturers with the knowledge they need to operate, hire & train smarter.
Quentin Moore, a 20-year U.S. Navy Veteran, joins the Association as Program Manager of the T.I.D.E. project, which will train a vibrant, highly skilled talent ecosystem for the defense industry and remove barriers to help deploy automation on the plant floor.

Nearly twenty regional partners and manufacturers are supporting this project to grow the skilled manufacturing workforce for the U.S. defense industrial base.
