Alexandria area provides manufacturing tour

The Alexandria area will host a free Statewide Tour of Manufacturing Thursday through Saturday, October 24-26.

This tour provides an educational opportunity to learn about modern, high-tech manufacturing and the careers available in the area.

The public is invited to see manufacturing in action at the following open houses:

• Aagard • Alexandria Industries

• Brenton Engineering

• Donnelly Manufacturing

• Douglas Machine

• Douglas Finishing

• Lind Rite Precision

• Massman

A recent study shows that many people are unaware of the high-tech and well-paying jobs available in the manufacturing sector. These open houses will help to inform the public about manufacturing opportunities.
