Precision Plus in Elkhorn, Wisconsin Kicks Off Manufacturing Month With a Plant Tour Open To Everyone
In recent years, the possibility that a career in manufacturing could offer a great future, has become something of a well-kept secret. In spite of the downturn in the economy, jobs in manufacturing abound, but the skills gap continues to widen.
In October of 2012, a nationwide initiative by U.S. manufacturers was launched to showcase this industry which is the backbone of this country. The initiative was called “Manufacturing Day.” This year, the initiative continues to gain momentum. In Wisconsin alone, more than 450,000 careers are in manufacturing, and Governor Scott Walker has officially declared October, “Manufacturing Month.”
The initiative addresses the shortage of skilled professionals from many angles, with a focus on education and awareness.
Precision Plus is delighted to actively participate in this endeavor. To kick off Manufacturing Month, Precision Plus is hosting an Open House at its premises located at 840 Koopman Rd. in Elkhorn, Wisconsin on Thursday, October 3rd starting with an information presentation at 6:30 pm and a plant tour at 7:00 pm. Everyone is invited.
On Friday, October 4th, Precision Plus will host several high school groups for tours and information on manufacturing.
As always, Precision Plus welcomes individuals, groups and organizations to tour our facilities. Please contact Barry Butters, Director of Education & Training at (262) 743-1700 to schedule a time, or email him at email@example.com.
