October 6th was a big day for 100 students in particular when they were given the chance to join Yamaha Marine Precision Propellers, Inc., in celebrating National Manufacturing Day (MFG Day)! The day’s events included touring the facility, seeing how propellers are manufactured, and even pouring steel to make a marine part of their own. Seeing as many of these students attend local technical schools in the Indianapolis area, this was definitely a treat.
“Our country is in great need of skilled workers who can make a difference in the manufacturing industry,” shared Jonathon Burns, General Manager, Yamaha Marine Precision Propellers, Inc. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to participate in National Manufacturing Day by welcoming these students and hopefully, communicating the importance of learning a trade that can further a career.”
Observed by small and large manufacturers all over, MFG Day has rallied participants from all 50 states. This includes the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), a proud supporter that promotes the event as a great opportunity for recruitment and public education about the economic importance of manufacturers in the US. Great job, Yamaha and all those involved, for keeping the fire of the boating industry roaring by engaging the next generation!
