Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 22, 2014
EWI, the manufacturing technology innovator, is holding a community Open House on October 3, 2014, in collaboration with the College of Engineering at The Ohio State University. The event is being held in conjunction with Manufacturing Day 2014, a national day designed to educate the public about US manufacturing and its vital role in today's economy.
Attendees will have a first-hand opportunity to learn about EWI's latest innovations for manufacturing, see demonstrations of cutting-edge technology, and tour the company's state-of-the-art labs and workshops with EWI's engineering and technical Associates. Last year, EWI welcomed more than 50 guests from the community including students, parents, neighbors, business people, manufacturers, and state government representatives who took part in tours, presentations and hands-on welding experiences to learn about the future of manufacturing.
“Many companies tell us that EWI has been instrumental in helping them develop new technologies that will enhance their competitiveness," says Henry Cialone, President and CEO. “Last year’s Open House was a big success, and we are excited to once again open our doors to show our community the opportunities in manufacturing and the innovative work we do right here in Columbus.”
Two 90-minute Open House sessions are scheduled on Friday on October 3rd at 10:00am and 2:00pm at EWI headquarters, located on Ohio State’s west campus. Advanced registration is required to attend. Space will be limited in each session, so guests are encouraged to register early. Guests may sign up by calling 614.699.5000 or visiting http://www.regonline.com/MfgOct2014.
