13th annual Manufacturing Breakfast educates and inspires
Once again, McHenry County College opened its doors, and rustled up a wonderful hot breakfast, for the leaders and innovators among our county’s more than 500 manufacturers.
The 13th annual breakfast held last Wednesday showcased not only MCC’s manufacturing training programs, but also provided a wonderful networking environment, as well as an opportunity to showcase how MCC and local businesses provide pathways for young men and women to pursue lucrative careers in the growing field of manufacturing!
Prior to the break-out sessions, this year’s panel discussion focused on investing in skilled workforces through automation. Special thanks is due to the panelists – Charter Dura-Bar/Aarowcast Technology and Automation Manager Spencer Benz, Stryker Senior Manager for Manufacturing Engineering and Maintenance Heather Mercier, and Fabrik Molded Plastics Automation Manager Robert Miller.
All three companies are members of the Manufacturing Pathways Consortium – click here to learn more about the organization and its mission to advance manufacturing and workforce development in McHenry County.
