On Friday, October 4th, we are hosting a factory tour in honor of Manufacturing Day. The tour will involve a walk through of the factory, a visual explanation of our process, and some insight into the electronics components market. Whether you are a student in the engineering field or a seasoned engineer already, this tour is for you!


During the tour, you will learn about our unique swaging process, a metalworking method that is virtually scrapless and can produce precision parts quickly and inexpensively.

In addition to sharing knowledge about the industry, we hope to debunk negative images of manufacturing with its "smokestacks and lunch pails" and prove that manufacturing can be innovative, high-tech, and engaging. If we can speak to the next generation, we can address some of the largest challenges of manufacturing, including the increasing shortage of skilled workers.

Interested? Register for the tour. Light refreshments and a brief presentation by the CEO will follow. Bring a colleague or a friend!

We hope to see you there.
