Event Highlight: Tri-Rivers Career Center Class Visit to JIS
 
We hosted over 60 customers for the event! We are very thankful for the support from our customers, and one particular RSVP we recieved.
 
Scott Jones, an educator from Tri-Rivers Career Center in Marion, Ohio signed up to bring his Advanced Machining class (image right) to our Seminar. This class is part of the RAMTECH program at the Career Center, a central hub for 9 surrounding schools. 5 juniors and 5 seniors are educated on how to work with all of the typical machines in most manufacturing shops and safety. Many of the graduating seniors have moved on to continue to work in the industry, and Scott believes he will see most if not all of his seniors continuing on in the field. 
 
RAMTECH has been recognized by the Society of Manufacturing Educational Foundation, Ohio Economic Development Association, Governor Kasich and the Ohio Department of Education. We were very happy to have such a great program at our facility in Cleveland, Ohio.  The young men were fantastic guests, participating in the Guhring class, lunch with other area professionals and completed their day with a tour of the Jergens, Inc. facility.
 
Jergens, Inc. is committed to the continuous education of young individuals and helping the industry to grow and thrive. We look forward to continuing to support young adults as they begin careers in the manufacturing industry.
