Program Designed to Expand Knowledge of Manufacturing, Improve Public Perception of Manufacturing Career Opportunities
Cuba, Missouri, September 22, 2015 –
In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2015, Meramec Instrument Transformer Co., the preeminent manufacturer of Instrument Current Transformers to the electric power industry, will open its doors on Oct. 2 to more than 95 students from Cuba High School and their career advisors as part of an effort to change people’s perceptions about today’s manufacturing environment and draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide. Planned events include facility tours and individual discussions between the students and Meramec’s senior leaders and current employees on career opportunities and the skills required for the many roles in the manufacturing operation.
Manufacturing Day is an annual national event executed at the local level supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers and other local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
In support of this national event, Crawford County Commission has issued a resolution, which declares Friday, October 2, 2015, to be “Manufacturing Day” in Crawford County, Missouri.
“There is an increasing demand for highly skilled professionals in the manufacturing sector who can design, program and operate technology,” said Nick Sanazaro, President/CEO with Meramec Instrument Transformer Co. “The average age of a manufacturing employee is 56, and between now and 2020 there will be an unprecedented shortage of skilled workers who will need to be replaced.”
Manufacturing Day is co-produced by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM).
