Manufacturing Day For Somerset WI High School Students
SMC Ltd. recently hosted a manufacturing day for 64 sophomore students in partnership with the Somerset Wisconsin High School. Students spent the day with SMC employees in classrooms and touring various manufacturing areas for a first-hand look into the manufacturing processes of medical devices. During tours, students had the opportunity to interact with SMC employees who shared how each area in manufacturing comes together to complete a device. Tours also provided students with a glimpse into possible career opportunities.
“We really tried to give the students a great understanding of all aspects of our business” said Eric Malmgren, Engineering Services Manager, SMC Ltd. “It’s important to us (SMC Ltd.) to expose students to skilled positons available in manufacturing beyond what they traditionally might have known. We’ve found that manufacturing isn’t being discussed in the high schools as a viable career option. We believe events like this will help students understand manufacturing and get excited about what we’re doing in the medical device manufacturing space.”
