Mfg-day-2015Manufacturing Day 2015 was officially held on October 2nd this year and over 2,300 companies  throughout the US and Canada held over 2,560 events promoting the manufacturing industry.

Two Tribute customers were part of that coordinated effort and opened their doors to future generations interested in a career in our industry.

The event exposed local high school students to a number of unique job opportunities at an industrial distributor that designs and builds fluid power, motion control and automation systems. Check out some of the photos from their event:
