Ultrasonic Power Corporation is very proud to participate in the 2nd Annual Manufacturing Day on October 2, 2015. The event was sponsored by CareerTEC, Highland Community College, Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC), and NIDA.
Highland Community College hosted a manufacturers “expo” for students to tour, lunch, and hear guest speakers and had seven local schools participate. Company tours were also provided for the students.
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.
