In this era of artificial intelligence and advanced technology many young adults neglect to consider a career in manufacturing because of the preconceived notion that new technologies are not present in the field. Through this annual event, manufacturers across the nation open their doors to students, business professionals and the public to shatter those misconceptions and shed some light on the many forms of advanced technology, engineering, and powerful computing utilized every day in the manufacturing industry.

On Friday, October 4th, 2019 Merritt Aluminum Products opened its factory doors to the public to tour the facility and celebrate Manufacturing Day with food, fun, and a virtual welding challenge hosted by General Air and Miller. Business professionals and students of all ages attended the event including welding students, local high schools, and home school groups. Fort Lupton’s Mayor, Zo Stieber also stopped by to show her support for this important annual event.

Employees from Merritt Aluminum Products led factory tours highlighting their engineering and 3-D printing department along with computer-automated machines while walking visitors through the step-by-step journey of creating heavy-duty aluminum truck accessories. After the tours, guests were encouraged to stick around and visit the company career college fairs hosted by Aims Community College, Community College of Denver, and Front Range Community College. Merritt Aluminum Products also invited all guests to enjoy a complimentary food truck lunch and to embark on some friendly competition with outdoor games set up along the large outdoor tent area.

With the ongoing goal of educating and inspiring the next generation about the importance of manufacturing, the Merritt Aluminum Products team has started brainstorming how to make the 2020 Manufacturing Day celebration bigger and better than ever. This annual event will be held on Friday, October 2nd of 2020 so stay tuned as Merritt Aluminum Products finalizes plans to make this event more interactive, educational, and entertaining.
