Futuramic opened its doors to help celebrate Manufacturing Day and to inspire future generations of builders, makers, and manufacturers on Friday, October 5. Students from Utica, Fitzgerald, & Pershing High Schools visited our Detroit and Warren locations to see and learn more about modern manufacturing.
This year, attendees were given a tour of Futuramic facilities, and experienced the ways we help build NASA’s most powerful rockets for missions to mars, Lockheed Martin’s all-weather stealth multirole F-35 Lighting fighter jet, and other, and Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner .
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.
Futuramic was one of 2,710 events around the country participating in MFG Day 2018. 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. We participate each year to highlight the importance of manufacturing to the U.S. economy and showcase the rewarding, highly skilled jobs available in manufacturing fields. Our event and many others are not just informational. It’s a way for manufacturers to convey their passion for what they do, and explain why and how young people can embrace the profession and prepare for good-paying careers with post-secondary training that often lasts just a year or two and doesn’t leave them with decades of college loan debt.
