Raymond welcomes students to virtual Manufacturing Day event

The company’s virtual Manufacturing Day event invites students from across the country to learn about careers in the manufacturing industry

The Raymond Corporation will host a virtual Manufacturing Day experience on Friday, October 2, 2020, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Raymond’s event will coincide with Manufacturing Day, the annual nationwide celebration of the manufacturing industry organized by the National Association of Manufacturers. This year is the first year Raymond’s Manufacturing Day will be an entirely digital and virtual event, enabling students from across the country to discover what careers in today’s advanced manufacturing really look like — via virtual programming.

As manufacturers seek to fill 4.6 million high-skill, high-tech jobs over the next decade, Manufacturing Day empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.

Manufacturing careers are at the heart of some of the most impactful work being done in response to the pandemic, and we are excited to introduce students to the possibilities manufacturing careers can provide.
