Trivium Packaging, the $2.8B global provider of sustainable metal packaging solutions with 60 locations worldwide, has announced its Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) programming, “The Foundation For Generations: Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.”
The program will be a celebration of the manufacturing industry, from its early days to a look ahead into its future.
The events aim to engage younger generations and their parents to showcase the wide range of career opportunities manufacturing can offer from professional and technical jobs to operational services.
Part of the challenge is to break the negative stigma around manufacturing jobs in order to attract young talent and meet customer demand, according to the company.
The festivities will kick-off on October 4, 2022, with events running throughout the month of October.
Trivium plants in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania; Conklin, New York; Roanoke, Virginia; Weirton, West Virginia; and Youngstown, Ohio, will participate. Activities will include plant presentations with Q&A sessions around manufacturing and career paths, plant tours, and family and children’s activities like arts and crafts.
Held annually on the first Friday in October, MFG Day helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers, and community leaders. As manufacturers seek to fill 4 million high-skilled, high-tech, and high-paying jobs over the next decade, MFG Day empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.
