National Manufacturers week is Oct. 1-5

LCC will highlight the importance of manufacturing next week by hosting area sixth graders for tours of Center of Manufacturing Excellence. The students will be introduced to career opportunities in manufacturing. WILX News 10 will also be on hand broadcasting live from West Campus on Friday, Oct. 5.

The manufacturing sector remains Michigan’s largest employer, according to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a growing and changing industry in Michigan, manufacturing remains one of the state’s largest talent gaps. At the CME, LCC is preparing students to work in today’s manufacturing sector to help bridge this gap.
