|Manufacturing Day at BGI
|In 2014, Beckett Gas began a program inspired by Manufacturing Day. The idea was to invite students to the factory and show them a day in the life of manufacturing. We choose a product line, and then walk the students through the concept to build phases. There are a number of reasons we do this and believe in this so strongly. We want to build excitement in manufacturing by educating students about the many opportunities that exist in this field. We feel it’s important to talk to students about the skills that employers look for and what students can do to make themselves more employable and essential to a company. By showing students the different paths and career fields that exist and are needed to make up the team we have here. It’s about helping in whatever way we can to build into this younger generation the skills to make a difference in our community. Finally, we just love having people visit and appreciate the opportunity to share anything we can to help out.
A typical manufacturing day event will start with donuts and a welcome presentation. This is followed by a tour through the plant. The tour includes numerous stops and hands-on interactions with the Beckett Gas team members as student follow a product from concept through design and into production. The students are then broken into small teams themselves are tasked to solve a design challenge of their own. The day ends with lunch and a question and answer session where we work to enforce the ideas that have been shared during the tour.
We are proud to have won the “AHRI Chairman’s Challenge” award last year for our program. If you think this is something that might interest you, please give us a call so we can schedule a date. Keep in mind that we do keep a full schedule and time slots fill fairly quickly.
To schedule a Manufacturing Day tour, call Greg Bloomfield at 440-353-1332. He would love to hear from you.
