The Women of Miltec described their job responsibilities and relayed real life stories of how Miltec provided them with a career path in Manufacturing.
Marilyn Blandford, Miltec’s CEO said, “I am proud of our women and feel honored to be surrounded by such strong women from whom I continue to learn every day”.
