NSCC Student Has Own Business
by TBR, Northeast State
If you don’t think anything’s still made in America, drop in on RMI in Bloutville and ask for Shane Roberts. Shane, a former Northeast State student, owns a machining/manufacturing business with a reputation for innovative CAD design and quality parts. RMI’s list of clients includes Eastman Chemical Co, End Point Industries and Google. Yes, Google. Last year, RMI became an official Google vendor when hired to work on a research and development project. The specifics are proprietary, but RMI initially developed one prototype and then produced seven of the mechanical systems. Shane said RMI then redesigned the system and has 17 more in production.
