We are always excited to host for Manufacturing Day at GenMet. We hope to give students a new perspective on manufacturing and hope that new interests will evolve. Manufacturing Day was developed by the Manufacturing Institute to help create a better understanding of manufacturing and improve the general public’s perception of manufacturing careers and the value manufacturing adds to the United States’ economy. GenMet has hosted multiple Manufacturing Days with attendance exceeding 200 people each year from four different high schools and grade schools. We host tours throughout the day to show our community what manufacturing is really all about. Visitors are able to interact with high tech equipment and highly skilled employees while they transform raw materials into everything from truck parts and wind turbine components to retail displays that they might see in department stores. Not only do students get a glimpse of the manufacturing world, but they will recognize that our team members truly enjoy their jobs. Manufacturing jobs are not what they used to be. It is no longer manual labor; it is technical work requiring a broad set of skills and the ability to understand lean manufacturing principles and advanced quality systems. As technology continues to advance, manufacturing has evolved into a truly high tech industry. A stronger comprehension of math, excellent problem-solving skills, and computer literacy are essential. The next generation of manufacturing talent must be made up of the best and brightest students. Making Stuff is Cool!
