Pete is also starting his company's journey into Additive Manufacturing and is excited about its potential.  

Throughout this episode, Pete talks about the people and organizations who have helped him and the company to get where it is now. Whether family members, exceptional employees, outstanding consultants, or the organizations that make up the CT manufacturing community, Pete leverages his relationships to bring success to Orange Research.
