October 6, 2017 National Manufacturing Day, A proclamation from Gov. Chris Sununu
NORTHFIELD — EPTAMPlastics played host to the kickoff event of Manufacturing Month in New Hampshire on Friday, offering a plant tour at the end of the formal networking meeting.
Manufacturing Month is designed to let people know of the products made here, and the high-paying jobs that are associated with them.
A proclamation from Gov. Chris Sununu recognized Oct. 6 as National Manufacturing Day, and Zenagui Brahim, president of the New Hampshire Manufacturing Extension Partnership, described the organization’s efforts to make students aware of the opportunities to make a diverse range of products in the state.
The partnership invites high school and middle school students on field trips to see how products are made, and Brahim said students from 49 schools had made 1,900 visits so far in 2017. The collaboration between educators and manufacturers is designed to help build the state’s future workforce.
