    During Manufacturing Day, students will be taken on a tour of the plant where they will be able to see every part of the facility and learn about the different machinery. We will highlight the various career opportunities available to them as they begin to enter the workforce. Afterwards, the students will be able to ask associates questions about specific careers that they're interested in. Local technical colleges will be attending to provide information on programs they offer to help prepare them for a career in manufacturing. Our goal is for the students to walk away with useful information about the many different jobs available in the manufacturing industry and how to pursue them! To register, click here.
