Anthony La Rosa Speaks at his Alma Mater - NJIT

TRI-POWER DESIGN’s Anthony La Rosa Speaks at Alma Mater

For Immediate Release - Contact: Michael C. Hornyak (973) 227-8235   

Newark, NJ – (Date:   November 3rd, 2010)

 

            In the midst of a packed crowd of engineering students and alumni Anthony La Rosa went home. The former ad-junct Professor at NJIT returned to a packed audience and discussed his passion for mechanical engineering. As a small business owner of an outsourced/design/automate and manufacturing house, La Rosa was candid about his career passion, making things that work.  During the 45 minute lecture he commented on the last two decades of the lack of home grown manufacturing in the US as well as specific businesses challenges relevant to his own discipline. In the end, he was optimistic about the restoration of manufacturing returning to the United States in a slow incremental progression.

            As a side note, La Rosa credits his mother for understanding his restless mind and the importance of following your dreams and core passion. He believes his family was key in helping to facilitate his career path that started at NJIT circa 1987.
          Anthony also mentioned that the key for a more profitable country in the 21st century is a simple catch phrase “Made in the USA” that has been passed down by generations of innovative Americans.  La Rosa is the principal and co-founder of Tri-Power Design, LLC.
