Local manufacturers to demonstrate skilled trades to high school students
TIFFIN, OHIO – June 27, 2017 – The Seneca Department of Job and Family Services/OhioMeansJobs is partnering with local organizations and manufacturers to hold Seneca County’s second Manufacturing Showcase on October 13, 2017 at the Heminger Center on the Tiffin 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 looking forward to another successful event: “Last year we were able to introduce more than 700 students to skills used in manufacturing careers in Seneca County. With the feedback from last year, we are confident that we can provide another positive experience for students and local companies alike.”
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.
Eleven schools within Seneca County will send nearly 800 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; Callies Performance Products, and The Mennel Milling Company of Fostoria have signed on as well as National Machinery, Webster Industries, and Toledo Molding & Die of Tiffin.
