Northwest Ohio Manufacturing Day Friday, October 4, 2019
Manufacturers from Williams, Fulton, Henry, and Defiance County are invited to participate in this one day only event!
Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. The overall goal of the event is to spark the imagination of students and give them a more concrete sense of what manufacturing is all about and teach students about the opportunities available in Northwest Ohio.
The 2019 featured industry sector is Food Processing and Agriculture. “Strategically located between the traditional Grain Belt region and the populous East Coast markets, Northwest Ohio is one of the leading manufacturing regions of food, equipment and agricultural products in the United States. Ohio employs over 100,000 people in the industry, including more than 16,000 here in Northwest Ohio working for a remarkable concentration of companies that process, distribute and market foods enjoyed around the world.” Read more about food processing industry in Northwest Ohio from the Regional Growth Partnership here.
Northwest Ohio Manufacturing Day is presented by the economic development offices in the four county area (Henry, Fulton, Williams, Defiance), in partnership with Northwest State Community College and Custom Training Solutions.
