"One of the things NTU has long believed is that by developing strong relationships with private industry, we can create a model for combating generational poverty. This model will bring not only honor on those who partner with us, giving them unique marketing opportunities, but can also help demostrate how good corporate citizenship can help improve society."

"Today we both celebrate and roll up our sleeves to work at developing a new industry on the Navajo nation, to enhance economic development, workforce expansion, and the opportunity for our Navajo students to become a part of the exploding industry of Advanced Manufacturing."

"We offer our Advanced Manufacturing Lab to serve as the hub for education, research, training, apprenticeships, and internships and look forward to helping coordinate facilities on the Navajo Nation such as testing, metrology, and high volume production."
