Last week YLP travelled to Bedford, MA to visit Spire Corporation, which manufactures not only solar panels but also machines that produce solar panels. We learned how solar panels are made and how machines that produce solar panels are sold around the world to people who want to start their own companies. We were honored to meet Roger Little, the president of Spire. Mr. Little spoke about the functions of the machines, where Spire acquires their materials, and how they make their products step by step to enhance their company and maintain their organization. We would like to thank Mr. Little for sharing his time with us, Dana VanAmburg for leading us on a tour of the Spire facility and explaining the details of the company, and Helen Christou of BYEN for arranging the visit. Spire’s work was inspiring, for their machines benefit not only today’s society but also future generations.
