Futuramic Tool and Engineering, Co. opened its doors to the community in celebration of Manufacturing Day and to inspire future generations of manufacturers on Friday, October 6. Students from Chandler Park Academy High School and Fraser High School visited the Detroit and Warren locations to learn about modern manufacturing and tour facilities with special guests, Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence and Wayne County Executive Director of Government Initiatives, Tupac Hunter.
Manufacturing Day’s mission is to reshape the image of the industry and introduce future generations to manufacturing careers of today. Careers in this industry have some of the highest combined salaries and benefits in the world and are instrumental in advancing the way in which we live.
This year, attendees were given a tour of Futuramic facilities, helping to build NASA’s most powerful rocket for their mission to mars, while also viewing a presentation on the importance of automation by Seimens.
Futuramic was one of 2,255 events around the country participating in MFG Day 2017. The company has been committed to raising awareness about the need for skilled labor by working with local and state government as well as high schools and colleges throughout Michigan.
