Manufacturing is booming in the United States, yet there is one major concern holding companies back from growing to their full potential—filling the manufacturing workforce with new talent. A great way for manufacturing companies to gain community recognition and recruit strong candidates is by participating in Manufacturing Day.
Manufacturing Month is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. To match up with Manufacturing Day, which takes place on October 6th, the state of Ohio celebrates Manufacturing Month the entire month of October.
This Fall, 200 students from the New Max Hayes High School took part in meaningful and fun manufacturing-related activities. These carefully coordinated activities were designed to introduce students to modern manufacturing and provide opportunities for career exploration to “inspire the next generation of manufacturers.”
Manufacturing is very much alive and kicking! Max S. Hayes High School students found that out on Friday, October 2nd, when they attended the local Rockwell Automation National Manufacturing Day event in Twinsburg, Ohio.
