Windsor Tooling hosts local high school students for Manufacturing Day

On Friday, October 6, Plasman Windsor Tooling had the pleasure of participating in this year’s Manufacturing Day #MFGDAY23!  We welcomed students from E.J. Lajeunesse, Catholic Central, St. Joseph, Riverside, College Boreal and WEST of Windsor.

Manufacturing day organized by Workforce WindsorEssex is an essential event that allows local manufacturing companies throughout the area to have students see firsthand who they are, what they offer, and the endless opportunities that a career in manufacturing has to offer.

This event had over 1000 students and 20 manufacturers participate in the Windsor-Essex area.
