Coastal Connecticut Chapter Members Take a Field Trip


Coastal Connecticut Chapter members went on a field trip to the Westchester Modular Home Factory in Wingdale, New York, a modern facility where three homes are completed every week. A guided tour allowed the ASHI members to see the entire process, from the automated cutting saw at the beginning of the procedure to the finished product at the shipping end of the factory.  They were impressed with the quality of the materials and with the end product.
