Baldwin County Top Employer Opens Doors to Students For National Manufacturing Day

Vulcan, Inc. announces participation and list of activities scheduled for the upcoming October 5th event.

In celebration of National Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 5th, leading Alabama-based manufacturer, Vulcan, Inc. plans to welcome in over 185 local students to get an in-depth view of the various career possibilities within the manufacturing industry.

This marks a rare and eye-opening day-long event for students from Foley and Robertsdale High Schools to witness, firsthand, the inner workings of a full-scale and established manufacturing facility with 265 employees. Planned activities range from employee-led tours of the 32-acre campus, to seeing the 5 manufacturing operating plants in action, to interactive simulations for students to try their hand at a host of manufacturing tasks.

Tommy Lee, CEO of Vulcan, Inc explains the significance of Vulcan, Inc.’s participation in the 2018 National Manufacturing Day, “This is our fourth year inviting local students to our plant to celebrate National Manufacturing Day. We are honored and excited to open our doors and let students see a glimpse of the many innovative options the manufacturing industry can offer in terms of possible career choices. We hope that every student will get to experience something new and leave the event with a unique perspective of manufacturing and what role it plays in our everyday lives,”

By giving students a chance to see what job prospects may lie ahead, Vulcan, Inc. is able to tap back into their strong community roots that helped propel them from their early days in 1935, as a small sign manufacturer in Birmingham, Alabama. Since opening their first shop, over 83 years ago, Vulcan, Inc. has invested both in their technology and in their employees, who own the company, to grow into a multi-million dollar enterprise that manufacturers and supplies high-quality and durable aluminum signs, for over a dozen industries and thousands of businesses across the country.
