ATAS International To Host National Manufacturing Day Open House On October 2nd
Allentown, PA - ATAS International Inc. will host an open house at its manufacturing facility located at 6612 Snowdrift Road, Allentown, PA, to celebrate Manufacturing Day. The event will be held on Friday, October 2, 2015, with two programs open to the members of the Greater Lehigh Valley area community; one begins at 9:00 am and the other at noon.
Founded in 1963, ATAS International Inc. is a leading manufacturer of sustainable building envelope technology, including metal roofing, metal walls, metal ceiling panels, and metal accessories, for commercial and residential buildings. The open house will give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at metal panels and trim being manufactured using high-tech equipment, including a turret press, roll formers and computerized metal brakes. A panel of ATAS staff will be on hand to answer questions referring to their manufacturing-related responsibilities. Attendees are encouraged to come prepared with questions for the employees and hear about new products and services that ATAS has to offer. Closed-toe shoes are required to participate in the facility tour.
Studies show that almost 80 percent of Americans believe manufacturing is important to the country's economic prosperity, standard of living, and national security. Yet only 30 percent of those surveyed would encourage their children to go into manufacturing careers. This is a trend that must be reversed and which Manufacturing Day seeks to address by giving more people an opportunity to discover what modern manufacturing environments are really like.
Manufacturing Day is an annual event that brings together hundreds of manufacturers in North America to host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers. A panel of co-producers comprising the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM), the Science Channel, and American Made Movie provides the support necessary to coordinate this nationwide array of simultaneous events.
