For the third year in a row, students from throughout Macomb County visited an area plant for Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) to learn about the industry and the careers it offers. Thanks to the willingness of 57 manufacturers who offered tours, an estimated 2,100 students participated.
Macomb County is the third most populated county in Michigan with a diversified portfolio of successful businesses. Its reputation is built on manufacturing, automotive, and defense. In addition to diversifying into other industries, Macomb continues to be a leader in its established sectors. But what does that success look like in the face of the latest technological advancements?
Do you have more bikes than people in your home? No problem! Help kids across the Eastside and help clear some space in your garage.
