There is an increasing demand for highly skilled professionals in the manufacturing sector who can design, program and operate technology. Over the next decade, manufacturers will need to fill 4.6 million jobs.
Organized by The Manufacturing Institute – the education and workforce partner of the National Association of Manufacturers – Manufacturing Day is designed to introduce young people and others in the community to the thriving industry to change perceptions of manufacturing, and highlight the high-tech companies that are solving tomorrow’s challenges today.
INX's Charlotte facility is one of its busiest operations, producing 90% of the 2-piece metal decorating inks used on beverage and beer cans for customers in North and South America and Asia. It also supports the company’s manufacturing facility in the UK. An expansion project completed in 2016 has led to business growth, new production records and increased staffing.
The event begins at 9 a.m. with opening remarks from company leaders, followed by a tour of the facility and other activities.
