On Manufacturing Day, Friday, October 3rd, we invited 35 Exeter High School students to tour our facility. Exeter High School, located in Reading, PA, has implemented a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (or S.T.E.M.) based program into their curriculum and asked us, along with other local businesses to partner with them to support this innovative initiative.
After learning more about overhead cranes, hoists and their applications, the students took a tour of our six manufacturing bays. They walked through areas where activities such as material preparation, machining, welding, electrical assembly, shipping/receiving and engineering occur daily. In addition, the students learned about manufacturing job titles like machinists, fitters, electricians, mechanics, as well as electrical, mechanical, welding and structural engineers and designers.
We will continue to be a resource for this invaluable educational program, offered for the first time this year by Exeter High School. For more information about careers in manufacturing visit www.mfgday.com.
