PTDA Foundation Endorses Manufacturing Day 2018


Manufacturing Day is coming on October 5, 2018. It presents an opportunity for power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) distributors to support their manufacturer suppliers and raise their own visibility as an employer within their own communities.

PT WORK Force, an initiative of PTDA Foundation to help PT/MC employers with employee recruitment, hiring and retention, has three new volunteer committees focused on enabling PT/MC employers to recruit new employees and attain a sufficient, vibrant workforce. They are advocating that PT/MC distributors participate in Manufacturing Day 2018.

“This is a great opportunity for manufacturers and distributors of power transmission/motion control products to open their doors to the public and show students, educators and parents that a career in the PT/MC field offers a variety of things to do, a good income with benefits and meaningful work,” said Pamela Kan, PT WORK Force℠ Outreach Committee Chair, and President, Bishop-Wisecarver. “There are so many people who don’t know what we do and it’s up to us to educate them. I can’t think of a better way than inviting them into our workplaces and showing them what we do.”

PT WORK Force has signed on as an endorser of Manufacturing Day 2018. With many manufacturers opening their doors to the community on or around October 5, distributors are also encouraged to join in the fun by visiting the Manufacturing Day web site at www.mfgday.com.
