Effingham County students to participate in Manufacturing Day


Effingham, IL-(Effingham Radio)- The Effingham County Chamber along with Effingham County schools have organized the annual Manufacturing Day  for Effingham County to be held next week on Thursday, October 7. This will be the 8th year the Chamber has  planned for local high schools to tour manufacturing facilities and get acquainted with the jobs that are available in  Effingham County. Many of our positions here locally are technologically advanced; utilize automation, robotics, and  other state-of-the-art equipment to produce a wide variety of products that are shipped around the world. 

“After postponing last year’s Manufacturing Day, I am pleased that we are proceeding with brining Manufacturing  Day to our Effingham County students. This day allows manufacturing companies to not only educate students about  the careers in manufacturing but to also inform them about the important part the manufacturing industry plays in  Effingham County”, said Chamber President & CEO Lucinda Hart. 

Nine local manufacturers will be hosting student tours this year. Those included are Kingery Printing Company;  Pyramid Marble & Granite; Quad Graphics; Sherwin Williams Company; Siemer Milling Company; Stevens Industries,  Inc.; Three Z Printing; Versatech LLC; and Waupaca Foundry Inc. Effingham.

Participating Schools are Altamont High  School, Aspire Alternative School, Beecher City High School, Dieterich High School, Effingham High School, Pathways  Alternative School, and Teutopolis High School.
