Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It usually happens the first Friday of October. I was lucky enough to participate this year in the Olean community which was organized by Evelyn Sabina. During the day, I was invited to tour and learn about three companies within Olean, SolEpoxy, Napoleon Engineering Services, and Scott Rotary Seals.
These products are being manufactured in Olean, NY. How many students, teachers, community members know this? I was very surprised by the knowledge I gained and learned from the day. These companies would love to help the school districts more in order to help prepare their students for their future, and it should be something taken advantage of!
