Manufacturing has changed dramatically over the last few decades. Advances in automation, computer control, materials and information technology have increased the demand for a highly trained workforce. Manufacturing Day allows companies to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is in the 21st century. More practically, it’s a great way to connect the future workforce to potential employers. Several manufacturing companies in Culpeper County will participate in Manufacturing Day by hosting a visit from Culpeper high school students. The Culpeper County Public School System is coordinating these visits that are scheduled to occur in early October of this year.
Over the next decade, manufacturers will need to fill 4.6 million jobs. These jobs offer long-term career opportunities, high pay, and exposure to cutting-edge technology and innovations. Last year, 275,000 people participated in nearly 3,000 MFG Day events across North America—and more than half said they are now more interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing or more likely to tell friends, family, parents or colleagues about manufacturing.
