In the beginning of October, NFPA member company and education partners reached more than 500 students with their Manufacturing Day activities. Aggressive Hydraulics, Airline Hydraulics Corporation, Avanti Engineering, Daman Products, JEM Technical Marketing, and Triton College all participated in the nationwide celebration of manufacturing by giving facility tours, showing fluid power in action, and telling students more about potential careers in the fluid power industry.
The yearly event encourages manufacturers and distributors to open their doors to host students who have an interest in learning more about careers in various industries. However, Manufacturing Day celebrations are not the only opportunity for companies to open their doors to students. Student Career Connections is a very similar program from the NFPA that brings fluid power to students through interactions with employees of member companies. Program options range from a school field trip to tour a company’s facilities to bringing a fluid power expert into the classroom to speak to students. Learn more about the program here:
