Manufacturing Technology & Innovation Featured in October

The Manufacturers Association of the Southern Tier and Dream It Do It Western New York are proud to participate again this year in National Manufacturing Month during October. 

There are a number of events planned in observance, beginning with a professional development day on Friday, October 6.  Attendees will hear presentations from Dream It Do It and Jamestown Community College, watch cutting edge technology videos, tour the Manufacturing Technology Institute @ JCC, participate in building hands-on projects and tour manufacturing facilities.

Other events are planned for the month as well.  October 19 is Women in Manufacturing Day at Cummins and October 20 is the Jamestown High School’s Academy Days.  On October 27 Manufacturing Month will include technology tours where students from a variety of school districts will tour manufacturing facilities in the County. Similar programming is being coordinated in Cattaraugus County throughout the month of October.

These events and programming are designed to celebrate modern manufacturing and inspire the next generation of manufacturing workforce.  Dream It Do It WNY focuses on encouraging students to consider careers in manufacturing. The Manufacturers Association of the Southern Tier launched Dream It Do It to help address the workforce needs of manufacturers. Manufacturers have identified a skilled workforce as a critical component of supporting and expanding our community’s manufacturing base.  For more information about Manufacturing Month in Chautauqua County contact Jehuu Caulcrick, Chautauqua County Coordinator for Dream It Do It, at 484-1101 or at
