Makino Event Hosting 500 Area Students Gives an Inside Look at Top Manufacturing Technologies
Mason, OH, October 25, 2019 --( National Manufacturing Day is a coordinated effort across the nation to show students, parents, and educators what manufacturing today looks like. In the month of October, more than 4,500 students will participate in 61 different events designed to inspire the next generation and show off the highly skilled jobs available in this region. Nowhere in the country are there more Manufacturing Day events scheduled then here in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana.

In celebration of Manufacturing Month 2019, Makino is opening its facility on Friday, October 25, to more than 500 students, teachers, and community members to showcase leading manufacturing technologies behind the world’s most advanced machine tools. This event will include guided tours throughout Makino’s Mason facility followed by hands-on activities and demonstrations designed to encourage interest in manufacturing careers.

“We want to prove to today’s youth that manufacturing is a vibrant career field filled with cutting-edge technologies and plenty of opportunity,” said Don Lane, president and CEO of Makino Inc. “With increasing demand for highly skilled professionals in the manufacturing sector, it is critical that we encourage today’s students to take advantage of the opportunities in manufacturing.”
