Watch a robotic welder zap metal parts together at Therma Tron-X, or taste chocolate chip cookies baked in 45 seconds in an industrial oven made at Hatco Corporation. These experiences and many more await you, your family, friends and co-workers during the second Door County Manufacturing Day, October 4, 2019. Free Tours are being offered to the public from 12:30 PM – 4:00 PM. Anyone who arrive by 4:00 PM will have the opportunity to tour these businesses located in the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park. If you’re searching for a new job or career, bring your resume and prepare to engage with companies that are currently hiring.

This event is hosted by Door County Economic Development Corporation, and sponsored and supported by Door County Manufacturers Association.

Our future workforce will have the opportunity to explore career options here in Door County, when 240 high school sophomores from four Door County high schools will tour 11 businesses from 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM..

The participating businesses for both days include: Cadence, Inc., ExacTech, Hatco Corporation, Hi-Tec Fabrication, Key Industrial Plastics, Marine Travelift, Inc., N.E.W. Industries, Pro Products. Inc., Therma Tron-X, Inc., Sunshine House, Inc., and WireTech Manufacturing.

For safety, please wear closed-toed shoes on the tours – these are active manufacturing and design facilities. Northeast Wisconsin Technical College will have its ElectroMechanical Mobile Lab in the Sunshine House parking lot on Saturday. This 53-foot trailer is designed to introduce students to advanced manufacturing careers through hands-on experience with the customized equipment housed within the mobile lab.

The Sunshine House will also host a brat fry from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m with all proceeds going to support the many fine programs they offer.

Information about the businesses and a map of the industrial park will be available at each participating manufacturing company and at the Information Tent on the corner of Neenah Ave and Hwy 42 (stop light).

“This is an opportunity for the public to get a first hand look at the great manufacturing capabilities right in our own backyard. In addition job seekers will be able to get information about the 127 career opportunities available at these outstanding companies.” said Tom Strong, DCEDC Operations Manager. “
