PCEDC Staff News

Platte County Park Hill and Platte County R-3 students  participated in National Manufacturing Day activities. Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufactures and takes place the first Friday in October. MFG DAY  addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufactures an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is.  A total of 70 students had the opportunity to tour 3 local advance manufacturing companies: Multivac, Haldex, and Marlen International.

Students had the opportunity to tour the facility floors and see equipment being manufactured first hand. They visited the different departments to learn about career opportunities available in the industry and education required for different positions. All three company tours were a success and the companies reported they enjoyed hosting the students and look forward to future opportunities to engage with education partners.

Multivac is a leading provider worldwide for packaging solutions for food, medical and pharmaceutical products as well as industrial and consumer goods.

Haldex develops and manufactures brake systems for heavy trucks, trailers and buses. The product offering covers all primary components and subsystems included in complete air brake systems.

Marlen International is a manufacturer of highly engineered food processing equipment and systems.
