In celebration of the third Jackson County Manufacturing Day, MACI joined with more than a dozen local manufacturing companies to open their doors to about 600 students from Jackson High School, Jackson Pathways High School, Hanover-Horton, Concord, and Napoleon – Ackerson Lake Schools on Friday, October 4th for Manufacturing Day. As part of an effort to change perceptions about today’s manufacturing environment and draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide, MACI partnered with the Enterprise Group of Jackson to coordinate the event, which is celebrated at hundreds of sites across the nation.
Activities included guided tours of MACI, including manufacturing operations, career opportunities, safety procedures and policies along with educational opportunities provided by MACI.
Participating students received materials from MACI, including a booklet that showcases the history and value of manufacturing in Jackson as well as where to go next to begin pursuing one of the many career options in the field.
Manufacturing Day is an annual national event executed at the local level and supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
MACI is proud to partner with Manufacturing Day each year since its inception.
