Imagine… changing the life of a high school student in one semester

“My son was the type of kid who never really had any direction. Because of the AMP program, he’s more sure of himself and what he wants in a career.”

Tanglewood’s non-profit, the Untangled Minds Foundation, developed the AMP program to build the next generation workforce. See what this mother had to say about her son’s transformation and the amazing AMP program.

“Never underestimate the valuable and important difference you make in every life you touch…

For the impact you make today has a powerful rippling effect on every tomorrow.”

-Anonymous

Manufacturing gets another look…

To celebrate the real value of Manufacturing in Maryland, we must look beyond just recognizing great companies that bring value to our community.

Manufacturing is a MINDSET; it is the creation of innovative ideas. How do we inspire the “excitement for CREATING things” in our future workforce?

From the building of extraordinary glass architecture to custom, hand-crafted boats to beautiful architectural mesh, manufacturing is experiencing a renaissance of relevance.

In Maryland, manufacturing is responsible for over 104,000 jobs and the generation of $23.4 billion in gross state product. With such a strong impact in our community, the sustainability of a vibrant, skilled workforce is imperative. The next generation is inspired by this industry and our work with the Untangled Minds Foundation and the AMP Program are examples of just that!

We are honored to be recognized as Maryland MEP’s Manufacturer of the Month for the contributions to our community, clients, and partners. In our 25+ years of business, our mission to inspire everyone we touch through the creation of extraordinary glass architecture continues to touch lives around the world!

Are We A Sustainable Company?

What does sustainable mean?

Some think sustainability means you recycle, reduce energy, and are more efficient in operations. But at Tanglewood, we define sustainability differently. All of the efforts toward energy conservation and recycling are necessary but…

What is the goal of sustainability?

We believe to be sustainable means belonging to a vibrant, thriving community that will be a sustainable, cultural environment for our children and our children’s children.

What are we doing to accomplish that?

The Advanced Manufacturing Professionals (AMP) Program created through our 501c3 Untangled Minds seeks to help students acquire the skills and perspective every business owner wants to see in their employees. Bundled into a three semester course, the AMP program’s primary focus is to develop students who (1) Take ownership and initiative, (2) Seek to understand what owners and managers of a company are passionate about, and (3) See and do what is required without having to be asked or told.

Does that sound like an employee you would like to hire?

It is these skills wrapped around the technical skill component along with the strong partnership of community members, community businesses, and education that advances student skills, perspective, and ways of thinking.

After all, to establish a sustainable community, we first must develop a sustainable workforce for our growing business partners.
