Recognize a Friend or Family Member

The Manufacturing Ledger offers people the opportunity to recognize and honor a friend or family member whose career in manufacturing was an important part of their life. Your contribution ensures their hard work and dedication will be recorded and shared in a museum dedicated to manufacturing. Their profile will be indexed and searchable by the industry sector they worked in, the various job functions held throughout their career, and the companies they work for, so co-workers and industry peers can discover and  read more about their career history. 

By sharing stories of people who worked in all aspects of manufacturing, the Manufacturing Ledger will help inspire the next generation of innovators and by your financial contribution will support the American Precision Museum.

"I chose to honor my late Grandfather, A.J. (HOPPE) Hagopian because of his many contributions to the manufacturing community. His hard work, dedication to employees and community were evident in everything he did. An immigrant that came to this country as a non-English speaking 8-year-old boy, Hoppe gave over $1,000,000.00 to charities during his lifetime. He was a great family man, respected business leader and innovator the likes of which we should all aspire to become."

- Eric Hagopian
