Manufacturing Day 2019

Manufacturing Day 2019

Hematite had the pleasure this month to tour Waterford District High School, Assumption College and Miami Valley Career Technology Center students through our Brantford, Ontario and Englewood, Ohio facilities. Manufacturing Day is an opportunity for local manufacturers to educate high school students, and encourage them to consider a career in Manufacturing; specifically, Skilled Trades. Thanks to all the students and teachers who took part in this important event. Ontario’s manufacturing industry generates $270 billion in annual sales and accounts for 18% of the province’s GDP, employing over 12% of Ontario’s total workforce. With nearly a quarter of manufacturing workers due to retire in the next few years, the focus must be on encouraging young people to seek out rewarding careers in the manufacturing sector.
