Seneca County to hold Manufacturing Showcase for students

Local manufacturers to demonstrate skilled trades to high school students

SCMS_logoTIFFIN, OHIO – June 30, 2016 – The Seneca Department of Job and Family Services/OhioMeansJobs is partnering with local organizations and manufacturers to hold Seneca County’s first Manufacturing Showcase on October 14, 2016 at Seiberling Gymnasium on the Heidelberg University campus. The event is an opportunity for area students to learn about careers in manufacturing and participate in hands-on skill demonstrations.

Carol Kern of Seneca DJFS is spearheading the effort: “Sandusky County held a similar event with tremendous success, and we would like to bring that same success to Seneca County. Our goal is to show local youths that there are many career opportunities within manufacturing and to give local companies an opportunity to interact with the future workforce.”

The showcase will focus on six skills: team building, lean practices, employability, machining, supply chain and mechanical engineering/electrical trades/automation. For each skill, there are six spaces available for a hands-on demonstration.

Thirteen schools in Seneca County will send more than 700 students to participate in the showcase. The event will last a full day, with students split into one morning session and one afternoon session. Lunch will be provided at no cost.

Several manufacturers are already on board; Roppe Holding Company/Seneca Millwork, Inc., Nox Corporation, and The Mennel Milling Company of Fostoria have signed on as well as National Machinery, Webster Industries, Toledo Molding & Die, Tiffin Metal Products and Quick Tab II of Tiffin. If you would like more information, to make a donation, or to sign up for a space at the showcase, please contact Carol at 419.447.5011 ext. 322, or visit http://senecashowcase.wordpress.com.
