Valley Forge & Bolt Mfg Co. MFG Day Event
VALLEY FORGE & BOLT MFG. CO. TO HOST MANUFACTURING DAY EVENT ON OCTOBER 5TH FOR PHOENIX COMMUNITY
Program Designed to Expand Knowledge of Manufacturing, Improve Public Perception of Manufacturing Career Opportunities
PHOENIX, AZ October 5, 2018 – In celebration of Manufacturing Day, Valley Forge & Bolt Mfg. Co. will open its doors on Friday, October 5th to students, teachers, the media, customers and others interested in manufacturing as part of an effort to change people’s perceptions about today’s manufacturing environment and draw attention to the outstand- ing opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide. Planned activities include a complete and in-depth tour of a hot forging facility that has been manufacturing in Phoenix for over 44 years. In addition they will be showcasing their patented load indicating fasteners that are trusted in industrial applications worldwide.
Manufacturing Day is an annual national event executed at the local level 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.
“There is an increasing demand for skilled professionals in the manufacturing sector who can design and build prod- ucts within the United States,” said Bret Halley, Chief Operating Officer. “It is a struggle for US manufacturers to find and retain employees while competeing in the world market. This struggle is largely based on associated stigma’s with working in the manufacturing industry. ”
Manufacturing Day is co-produced by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP). Partners include Edge Factor and the Sci- ence Channel and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing.
