Today is Manufacturing Day, a day to celebrate modern manufacturing and inspire the next generation of manufacturers.
Several manufacturing companies, including sign manufacturer Howard Industries, are offering tours of their facilities. Students from Erie Institute of Technology were shown the business and the process of manufacturing signs.
Marketing Director Briana Cummings says, “we would like to bring awareness to the multiple careers that are available here, not just in the plant, but also in the office, sales, the whole gamut”.
Several businesses are participating in Manufacturing Day, offering guided tours to local high school students.
