Manufacturing Day This Friday

Kinexus will hold its fifth annual Manufacturing Day event this week. Spokesperson Mary Morphey tells WSJM News Manufacturing Day is an opportunity for students, teachers, and others to tour local manufacturing facilities.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the vast array of things that are made in our own backyards,” Morphey said. “They get a chance to see a demonstration by local career and technical education students, robotics teams, and then employers who attend and have booths, they can showcase what they make.”

The manufacturers also get to engage in some recruiting. Morphey tells us they’re hoping for as many as 2,000 people to take part on Friday. Kinexus is organizing two separate Manufacturing Day events. They’ll be held at Bosche in St. Joseph and at AACOA in Niles.
