October is National Manufacturing Month! – Get Involved.
Last October was the first official “Manufacturing Month”, and after much success, the celebration returns again this year! Manufacturers around the country are supporting the cause, educating our youth on manufacturing, and highlighting the industry and the economy in order to make a stance and bring awareness to the industry as a whole.
October 4th is Manufacturing Day — but companies and industry professionals will be celebrating Manufacturing throughout the entire month. Last year, more than 240 events, across 37 states, with more than 7,000 people participated. Wichitech Industries, and all of our employees, are excited to be able to join in to educate people on the increasing amount of career opportunities that manufacturing has to offer, and how the industry and ‘New Manufacturing’ has evolved over time.
Across the country, several Manufacturing Day programs will be taking place to help change the image of Manufacturing – which was one seen as dark and dangerous, and designed for unskilled workers.
Companies are opening their doors to students and professionals who are curious about the industry and letting them know what Manufacturing is really about:
- “Manufacturing is technologically advanced, with ample use of automation, 3D printing, robots, and screen technology.
- The annual average salary of manufacturing workers is more than $77,000.
- Manufacturers have the highest job tenure in the private sector.
- 90% of manufacturing workers have medical benefits.”
At Wichitech, we’re happy to be involved in Manufacturing, and are proud of what it has become today. Get involved in National Manufacturing Month! Share your thoughts about Manufacturing, reach out to learn more, and experience what Manufacturing has become today.
