Lippert Components to Host Manufacturing Day Plant Events for Elkhart Goshen Community

Lippert Components to Host Manufacturing Day Plant Events for Elkhart Goshen Community

September 28, 2018

Elkhart, Ind. — In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2018, Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announces that it will open its doors from Monday, October 1 through Wednesday, October 10 to more than 450 8th grade students from Pierre Moran, Goshen, Concord, North Side, Northridge, and Fairfield Middle Schools as part of an effort to create positive awareness about today’s manufacturing environment and to draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide. Planned activities include facility tours at six LCI plant locations, team member success stories, career pathway options for different operations and divisions, product line educational information, safety precautions and product line mock runs with the students.

Manufacturing Day is an annual national event executed at the local level supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.

“There is an increasing demand for highly skilled professionals in the manufacturing sector who can design, program and operate technology,” said Stephanie Cook, People & Talent Acquisition Leader at LCI. “The average age of a manufacturing team member is 56, and between now and 2020 there will be a definite need for skilled workers who can work within the next generation of manufacturing operations.”

All press and news media are invited to attend the Manufacturing Day events. These events are not open to the public. Please contact for more information.
