GREEN BAY, Wis., Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TourGuide Solutions and the Manufacturing Institute, the social impact arm of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) are joining forces to educate the next generation on 21st-century, modern manufacturing opportunities and inspire and recruit them to become the next generation of manufacturers. As a Preferred Vendor sponsor of Manufacturing Day, TourGuide Solutions is providing substantial support for the nation's largest one-day celebration of manufacturing, which focuses on showing young people, parents and educators the opportunities a career in manufacturing offers.
"Manufacturers need the next generation to join the team. We thank our many generous sponsors, like TourGuide Solutions, who are working together to show young people the future they can create in modern manufacturing," said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons, who also serves as board chairman of The Manufacturing Institute. "Our industry is facing a workforce crisis—with far more jobs open than we have people to fill them. It's a challenge all manufacturers are tackling—but it also presents promising opportunities for those looking for a meaningful, rewarding career."

"TourGuide Solutions is honored to partner with Manufacturing Day," said Bridget Pedersen, marketing and business development manager at TourGuide Solutions. "Manufacturing Day is a great opportunity for manufacturers to show guests modern practices and attract future recruits. Our team works as an extension to manufacturers that want to stand out and not shout. TourGuide Solutions' wireless audio headsets allow tour hosts to deliver their message without complications, leaving their guests with a positive, lasting impression."
"Our Manufacturing Day initiative provides so many great opportunities to show young people the endless possibilities of modern manufacturing, and thanks to TourGuide Solutions' leadership, I'm confident we'll be able to inspire even more to picture themselves in an exciting new manufacturing career. That has never been more important," said Manufacturing Institute Executive Director Carolyn Lee. "Manufacturing faces an industry workforce crisis with nearly half a million jobs going unfilled today and millions more projected to go unfilled in the years to come. That's why The Manufacturing Institute, in concert with good sponsors like TourGuide Solutions, works so hard every day to promote modern manufacturing and jumpstart new approaches to growing manufacturing talent—especially through important programs like this one."
First held in 2012 and organized by its founder—the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International—Manufacturing Day gives manufacturers the opportunity to address the skills gaps they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the industry as a whole.
