In 2018, the Advanced Manufacturing Sector Board members had over 1,100 middle and high school students participate in the Advancing the Future Manufacturing Tours. With another tour scheduled for October 14-18, a successful tour with large numbers of participants is once again likely.

Technological advances and robotics in the manufacturing industry have transformed how we work, and this creates a demand for more skilled workers. Today’s manufacturers offer high skilled positions with lots of future potential.

On October 15th, IFP/EHA lead separate tours of our facilities for Mount Vernon and Linn-Mar school district students interested in career possibilities in the Motion Control Industry. Director of Engineering, Brian Tritle led both tours. Twenty manufacturers throughout the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Corridor are leading similar tours during this week long event. The public was also welcome to tour the manufacturers that operate and provide many jobs in their cities..
