PORTSMOUTH — John Kodzis knows firsthand the difficulties of hiring workers into manufacturing jobs.
“We have openings in all of our divisions,” said Kodzis, president and CEO of IPSUMM, a product development company at Pease International Tradeport focused on creative design using practiced engineering and manufacturing skills. “Signing people is tough.”
It is a lament shared by manufacturers throughout the region, a frustration the University of New Hampshire hopes to address with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
