Gyford Productions to host Manufacturing Day Open House
In partnership with Manufacturing Day 2018, Gyford Productions will open its doors to more than 130 students from local schools and technical programs. Students will have a chance to see how standoffs are made from conceptualization and computer models to the tangible product. They will tour the Gyford facility and experience the impact of skilled labor, gaining first-hand experience in manufacturing.
“At Gyford Productions, we feel one of the best ways to get students involved in manufacturing is by opening our facility and letting them experience what we do here. For Manufacturing Day, we have invited students to explore drafting, designing, and programming, and to share some of the tools we use. It’s great to be able to share our company with the next generation of manufacturers, because they are the future of this industry,” says Valerie Gyford, COO/CFO.
Gyford Productions has participated in this annual event since 2014. Over the past five years, Gyford Productions has opened its doors to more than 300 students interested in learning more about the manufacturing industry. In addition to promoting the manufacturing trades in general, several students who have visited on a Manufacturing Day tour have gone on to careers with Gyford.
