MFG Day Shines a Spotlight on Local Manufacturers, Highlights Career Opportunities
West Deptford, NJ – On October 4, MFG Day 2019, LAMATEK Inc. will host over 100 students, faculty, and members of the local community as part of an effort to highlight modern manufacturing — a vibrant and growing industry that offers diverse, high-paying career opportunities. The event features facility tours to showcase LEAN manufacturing principles, as well as hands on demonstrations, refreshments, games, and prizes. Visitors will receive a first-hand look at LAMATEK’s workplace culture as well as our manufacturing processes and the products we make every day.
Thousands of manufacturers support MFG Day, an national event held annually in communities across the country. Manufacturers host students, teachers, parents and community members with open houses, plant tours and more to change perceptions of manufacturing and highlight the high-tech and innovative companies that are solving tomorrow’s challenges today.
“Our annual event, and the MFG Day initiative as a whole, allows LAMATEK and manufacturers like us to showcase what manufacturing is really about,” said President & CEO, Bob Carlson. “We’re proud to highlight the innovative work we’re doing in West Deptford and we hope it inspires the next generation of workforce talent to pursue a rewarding career in manufacturing.”
First held in 2012 by its founder, the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association International, MFG Day is now organized by The Manufacturing Institute—the education and workforce partner of the National Association of Manufacturers. The events around the country, as well as the month-long initiative, gives manufacturers the opportunity to address the skills gaps they face and connect with future generations. The overall goal of MFG Day is to take charge of the public image of manufacturing and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the industry as a whole.
