October 5 is National Manufacturing Day

Fredericks is proud to be a part of National Manufacturing Day, a celebration of the many positive impacts manufacturers big and small have on their surrounding communities and the economy. It also aims to teach the next generation of doers and makers while focusing on advanced technical and STEM skills as they prepare to enter the workforce.

Modern manufacturing continues to evolve in new and exciting ways, and we’re working to spread the word about the opportunities it offers to both seasoned and brand-new employees just entering the job market. In conjunction with National Manufacturing Day, Pennsylvania’s Manufacturing Day celebration introduces students to diverse careers in manufacturing and connects the future workforce with local employers and job opportunities.

Did you know? It’s estimated that over the next decade, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed, and 2 million are expected to go unfilled due to the skills gap.

Today’s industry demands experienced problem-solvers and strategists, digital operators, engineers, and others who can blend management and STEM-related skill sets. Pennsylvania is preparing its students to take on an occupation that offers challenging, fulfilling, and stable work so that we can continue to build on our success now and in the future.

In addition to inspiring the next generation of skilled manufacturers, we want to thank our dedicated Fredericks and Televac production teams for all of your hard work and innovation! Whether you’ve been with us for 40 years or you’re new to the Fredericks family, we appreciate your continuous commitment to providing world-class tilt sensing and vacuum gauging technology.
