Miller Fabrication Solutions Offers Free Manufacturing Day Plant Tours and Job Fair on October 6
Participants will observe the manufacturing process, see robotics in action and learn about rewarding career opportunities
BROOKVILLE, Pa. (Sept. 26, 2023) – Miller Fabrication Solutions, which this year is celebrating its 60th anniversary, will welcome students and educators, customers, job candidates, vendors and members of the public for free plant tours on national Manufacturing Day (MFG Day), October 6. Held the first Friday of every October, MFG Day aims to introduce people to plant operations and inspire more people to consider rewarding careers in modern manufacturing.
The annual, nationwide event creates a perfect opportunity to lift the curtain on manufacturing and take people behind the scenes. Miller, a strategic metal fabrication partner for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in heavy industries like construction and forestry, transportation, material handling and engine and turbine equipment, will open each of its three facilities. Anyone interested in learning more about manufacturing technologies and processes or working in the industry is invited to attend.
On the tours, participants will see state-of-the-art robotics, CNC (computer numerical control) machinery and other equipment while learning about best-in-class lean processes, safe plant behaviors and what goes into fabricating high-quality parts for some of the world’s largest heavy equipment makers. At its Sandy Lick facility, Miller will debut its new milling machine, the largest in any of its plants.
Miller also will hold a job fair at each of its locations on MFG Day to showcase its career, apprenticeship and training opportunities. As one of western Pennsylvania’s larger employers, the manufacturer regularly hires new employees for good-paying positions.
“We participate in Manufacturing Day every year to expose people to manufacturing and show them what careers in our industry look like,” said Eric Miller, Miller Fabrication Solutions president. “Manufacturing is a bedrock of the national economy, and finding skilled workers to fill the critically important open manufacturing jobs continues to be an industrywide challenge. MFG Day shines a spotlight on manufacturing careers and contributions so that we can increase awareness of local opportunities and inspire future generations to explore them.”
