Alamance-Burlington high school students recently celebrated National Manufacturing Day by touring ABB, AKG, Cambro Engineered Controls Intl., Fairystone Fabrics, GKN Driveline, Honda Power Equipment, Jabil, Sandvik, Shawmut and Technical Precision Plastics. They learned about the dayto-day tasks of the employees who work for these companies. National Manufacturing Day is observed annually on the first Friday of October. More than 1,600 companies host students for tours, each year, hoping to inspire them to consider careers in the manufacturing and engineering fields.
