Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration that takes place on the first Friday in October. The goal of this celebration is to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Every year, thousands of American manufacturers participate in this event to help increase the technical education of high school students by allowing them to tour and work in their facilities.

This year, the Manufacturing Day events at Pittsburg Tank and Allstate Tower were showcased by Industrial Strength Marketing, the leading marketing agency for industrials. Having recently expanded their community outreach to the neighboring Union and Webster Country school districts, this year’s Manufacturing Day at Pittsburg Tank and Allstate Tower saw an increased number of students from the different Career and Technical Education Units walk through their doors. Students were not only able to tour both facilities but were given first-hand exposure to the internal processes carried out by the different teams.

Opportunities for Growth

Manufacturing Day at Pittsburg Tank and Allstate Tower is an excellent opportunity for students who are about to graduate and join the workforce. Throughout the years, there have been several students who have participated in this event and have become valued employees at both Pittsburg Tank and Allstate Tower.
