In honor of Manufacturing Day Pentaflex will be hosting Shaefer Middle School and
Springfield-Clark County Career Technology Center for a full tour of our facility. At Pentaflex, we find it our duty to embrace any opportunity that helps us connect today’s youth with modern-day manufacturing. During these tours, we hope to spark interest and answer any questions about what it means to have a career in manufacturing.
The event is schedule for both schools on Friday, October 2nd
, as it’s nationally recognized as Manufacturing Day.
Manufacturing Day is an occasion to boost the public’s awareness about manufacturing as well as promote it as a fulfilling career path for younger individuals. It encourages educational institutions and those within the manufacturing industry to host events that will highlight the importance of manufacturing to the nation’s economy and draw attention to the many rewarding high-skill jobs in manufacturing fields. Pentaflex participates in Manufacturing Day annually and encourages all other manufacturers around the country to do the same.
We find it important to participate and hope other manufacturers do too. The true message of manufacturing needs to be recognized as manufacturing is all about ingenuity, innovation, and teamwork. We know many young people would enjoy working within engineering and manufacturing but often aren’t given the right information about it or how to pursue it. It is up to those of us within the field to promote its advantages and benefits to the youth in the effort to have modern manufacturing advance even further.
