THE MFG DAY MISSION
MFG DAY addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.
Supported by a group of industry sponsors and co-producers, MFG DAY is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. The rallying point for a growing mass movement, MFG DAY empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive."
Mr. Mullins and Mrs. Mount (Her Official Title Here) took over 70 students to visit American Plastics in an opportunity to connect with local manufacturers and offer students an opportunity to explore potential career fields within the manufacturing industry. SHS offers Advanced Manufacturing and Welding courses in combination with MASP and Ivy Tech to our students in order to offer students the skills necessary to compete for the high tech jobs offered in Scott County's manufacturing sector.
