For the past three years PTM Corporation and Modified Technologies has celebrated modern manufacturing by participating in Manufacturing Day℠ This day is meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers by opening doors and showing students modern manufacturing up close and personal.
We expanded our outreach again this year by inviting two area high schools to attend two separate days of exposure to our operations. Algonac High School visited on October 5th – bringing with them 114 students; followed by Marine City High School on October 6th with 172 student.
Through these tours we are working closely with area educators in order to connect with future generations and take charge of the public image of manufacturing. It is our desire to address common misperceptions about manufacturing and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry through increased interest in the skilled trades.
