    Montgomery companies open doors to 300 Public School Students during Manufacturing Month

    Montgomery, AL, Oct. 4 – In October, the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with local companies and the Montgomery Public School System to participate in Manufacturing Month. This effort is coordinated by the National Association of Manufacturers to inspire the next generation of manufacturers and gives companies the opportunity to show their communities what they do, highlight the economic importance of manufacturing, and draw attention to rewarding manufacturing careers.

    There are more than 400 manufacturing companies in the Montgomery metro area that employ 27,800 workers. Throughout the month, companies such as Coca-Cola UNITED, Cotton and Pine Creative, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama, Jerry Kyser Builder, Inc., and Steris Corporation will bring over 300 students behind the scenes where they will see first-hand how a modern manufacturing integrates technology and innovation.

    “It is vital to our local economy for students and the community to learn about the tremendous opportunities available in modern day manufacturing. We support this event and thank the educators and businesses who participate, because we all know that continuing to develop a skilled, educated workforce is key to retaining and attracting high-tech advance manufacturing companies in the future,” said Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Chairman David Reed.

    The month will kick off with Manufacturing Day at 9 AM on October 5th at Montgomery Preparatory Academy for Career Technologies (MPACT) with a press conference featuring Mayor Todd Strange, County Commission Chair Elton Dean, and representatives from MPACT.
