Addressing the skills gap in today’s economy requires the coordination of industry partnerships and a proactive effort in reaching out to high school students.

One example of this type of economic development initiative is the collaboration of the Oshkosh School District, Oshkosh Corporation, Muza Metal Products, Jay Manufacturing, and Fox Valley Technical College.

These organizations joined forces to celebrate “National Manufacturing Day” on October 5 by welcoming busloads of high school students from Oshkosh to learn about in-demand careers in welding, metal fabrication, and advanced manufacturing. The day’s activities started with a tour of FVTC’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center in Oshkosh to learn about the latest in high-tech training resources, supported by Miller Electric Manufacturing Co.

Students then received close-up tours of manufacturing in action at Oshkosh Corporation, Muza Metal Products, and Jay Manufacturing.  Wisconsin’s New North region is the third-largest manufacturing sector in the United States.
