One of the issues we’re focusing on at StateImpact is the manufacturing sector in New Hampshire: What it looks like, its successes, and its challenges. Recently, we tagged along while US Senator Jeanne Shaheen toured a factory in Merrimack. Elbit Systems of America represents the new line of advanced manufacturing taking root in the Granite State and across the country: laser and enhanced vision technology, aerospace navigation, and high-tech medical equipment.
If you’ve ever seen an old school, Rustbelt-style factory, you’d likely be very surprised at what the inside of Elbit Systems of America looks like. So with that in mind, we’ve designed this slideshow to take you along with us on our tour of this advanced factory.

Rather than one large factory floor, the Elbit facility has a number of large rooms with big windows lining the hallways. As an advanced manufacturing facility, Elbit looks more like a high-tech center and less like an old-style Rustbelt factory.
