TULSA, Okla. — In celebration of MFG Day 2019 on October 4, AAON Inc. is hosting students from Tulsa MET High School and Webster School in partnership with Youth Entrepreneurs for tours as part of an effort to highlight modern manufacturing.

MFG Day, an annual national event held in communities across the country, is supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents and community members at open houses, plant tours and more to change perceptions of manufacturing and highlight the high-tech and innovative companies that are solving tomorrow’s challenges today.

“These events, and the larger MFG Day initiative, allows manufacturing companies like ours to showcase what manufacturing is really about,” said Stephanie Cameron,  community relations administrator, AAON. “We are proud to highlight the innovative work we are doing in Tulsa and hope the tours today inspire the next generation of workforce talent to pursue a rewarding career in manufacturing.”

First held in 2012 by its founder, the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International, MFG Day is now organized by The Manufacturing Institute — the education and workforce partner of the National Association of Manufacturers. The kick-off events around the country and month-long initiative 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.
