On Oct 6, 2023, an event organized by Mitsubishi Marengo Manufacturing caught my eye, perfectly showcasing the promising direction our industry is heading towards. It wasn’t merely a regular factory tour; it presented a vibrant glimpse into the future of manufacturing, highlighting the enthusiastic young individuals poised to spearhead this evolution.

Setting the Scene: Manufacturing Day at Marengo Facility

Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas, renowned for its innovation in material handling and automation solutions, commemorated National Manufacturing Day in style. They flung open their doors to over 60 high school students, introducing them to the marvels of modern manufacturing at their Marengo facility.

Having been in the industry for a while, I can assure you that there’s nothing quite like seeing cutting-edge tech in action. From robotic welding, powder coat painting, to intricate product assembly — witnessing these processes up close is mesmerizing.

Beyond the Tour: Why This Matters

Manufacturing Day isn’t just about showcasing technology; it’s about bridging the gap between budding professionals and the industry. Events like these do more than just offer a peek into the world of manufacturing. They inspire, they motivate, and they bring clarity to students pondering their future career paths.

In an age where there’s a pressing need to fill 4.6 million high-tech jobs in the next decade, initiatives like these couldn’t be more crucial. It’s not just about filling positions; it’s about ensuring the industry is led by passionate, skilled, and informed professionals.

Broader Implications & Thoughts

Manufacturing is evolving, and with it, the skill sets required. In a world increasingly reliant on automation and innovative solutions, how are we preparing the next generation? Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas has offered a commendable blueprint, but it’s up to the rest of the industry to follow suit.

Imagine the potential if more companies adopted this approach! We could have an industry buzzing with fresh ideas, revolutionary solutions, and a workforce fueled by passion and knowledge.

A Call to Other Industry Giants

While Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas has set a fantastic example, I’d love to see other behemoths of the industry take a similar initiative. Let’s make Manufacturing Day not just a day of celebration, but a catalyst for lasting industry change.

For any students reading this, if you ever get a chance to be part of such an event, seize it! And for industry professionals, perhaps it’s time to take a leaf out of Mitsubishi’s book and think about how we can contribute to shaping the future of manufacturing.
