Groov-Pin Celebrates Manufacturing Day 2018

Groov-Pin celebrated Manufacturing Day on October, 5, 2018, by hosting facility tours for members of our local community.

Students from the New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) and faculty from NEIT’s Electrical Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology departments visited our Smithfield, Rhode Island, facility for a presentation and plant tour.

Visitors were able to ask questions and connect with members of the Groov-Pin team including Brian Sylvestre, Jon Dupre, and Ray Scungio. Tour guides took visitors through our quality assurance, machining, toolmaking, cleaning, and shipping departments to give them a full overview of our business and manufacturing processes.

Manufacturing Day is a great opportunity to connect with students and educators in our community to give them an idea of what modern careers in manufacturing look like and inspire the next generation of workers.

There are many benefits to hosting or participating in an event for Manufacturing Day including making people more aware of manufacturing jobs in local communities and more convinced that manufacturing provides rewarding and interesting careers, and increasing motivation to pursue manufacturing careers. You can check out more facts and resources on Manufacturing Day’s official website.
