Diversified Machine Systems and Freedom Machine Tool give tours on #MFGDay2014 to cap off National Manufacturing Week
On Friday, October 3rd, over 1,600 events happened all over the country as community groups, education centers, colleges & universities and manufacturers all opened their doors to raise awareness about the American manufacturing sector. Many of the events for National Manufacturing Day were listed on MFGDay.com, were free to attend and open to the public. DMS and subsidiary brand, Freedom Machine Tool were proud to be able to offer MFG Day 2014 Tours, a first for the company. Last year, DMS participated in a week’s worth of events put on by other community partners such as the Pikes Peak Community College and the Pikes Peak Workforce Center.
“We were excited to be able to offer tours of our own this year,” explains Director of Marketing, Courtney Thurman. “As a recently named 2014 Colorado Company to Watch, we felt it was important to be as accessible to the future workforce and to be involved with the local manufacturing community as much as possible and this was a great way to do that.”
Colorado Springs showed an amplified interest and effort among its manufacturing community this year to get involved with MFGDay.com because of it’s national exposure. With the great response received from both students and community partners, it’s easy to expect to have even more to announce next year.
