In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2018, which takes place on October 5th, Gyford StandOff Systems will open its doors to more than 130 students from local schools and technical programs. Students will have a chance to see how standoffs are made from conceptualization and computer models to the tangible product. They will tour the Gyford facility and experience the impact of skilled labor, gaining first-hand experience in manufacturing.

“Here at Gyford, we believe manufacturing is at the heart of the U.S. economy. When skilled laborers make products, they also make jobs, opportunities, and financial security,” says Georgette Hartley, marketing coordinator. 

COO/CFO Valerie Gyford says, “We feel one of the best ways to get students involved in manufacturing is by opening our facility and letting them experience what we do here. For Manufacturing Day, we have invited students to explore drafting, designing, and programming and to share some of the tools we use.  It’s great to be able to share our company with the next generation of manufacturers because they are the future of this industry.”

Earlier this year, Gyford StandOff Systems won an “Outstanding Community Partner” certificate from the Washoe County School District in Reno, Nevada for its involvement in last October’s Manufacturing Day. They plan to continue participating in the annual event in the coming years.
