Manufacturing day, is organized nationally by the Manufacturing Institute, and it is manufacturing’s biggest annual opportunity to inspire the next generation, positively shift perceptions about the industry, and build the foundation for the manufacturing workforce of the future. The Pembina-Walsh 2023 day was the sixth annual event and was organized by the Red River Regional Council. We were part of 7 manufacturing companies around the area to host 190 total 7th grade students.
We provided an ambassador presentation and took the students on a facility tour. Our goal, to inspire next-generation workers to pursue a career in modern manufacturing. Showing the students how we manufacture display racks and allowing them to ask questions about the process, allowed the students to become more knowledgeable in what manufacturing looks like.
