Rockford Systems LLC. will be commemorating National Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) on October 4, 2019 by hosting an Open House in its new facilities located at 5795 Logistics Parkway in Rockford, Illinois. Scheduled to run from 8:00am to 4:00pm, the free event features a manufacturing and safety presentation in the company's training center, an interactive demonstration of safeguarded machines and combustion safety solutions, a laser-scanner maze, a SolidWorks CAD demo, and discussion of important machines and tools used in the manufacturing process. Throughout the day, students will have the opportunity to discuss careers in the dynamic, fast-changing field of modern manufacturing. In addition, several other manufacturers and local suppliers to the company will have booths on display for guests to view.
MFG Day was founded in 2012 by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association to address common misperceptions about manufacturing and to give companies like Rockford System an opportunity to open their doors and show, at a local level, what manufacturing is and what it isn't. Rockford Systems hosted its first MFG Day Open House in 2017.
Three local schools are scheduled to attend Rockford Systems Manufacturing Day: Washington Academy in Belvidere, Guilford High School in Rockford, and Jefferson High School in Rockford; all of which will each send approximately 50 students. The morning sessions will run from 8:00am to 2:00pm and are exclusively reserved for those students, while the 2:00pm to 4:00pm session is open to the general public and can accommodate smaller groups of students. To register for this event, please visit Eventbrite.
Attendees to Rockford Systems MFG Day Open House are required to wear closed-toe shoes and tie hair long hair back to ensure safety. Students under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult or participate with a school group.
