The L.S. Starrett Company will open its doors again this year to welcome students/schools, state representatives, and the community to participate in Manufacturing Day on Friday, Oct. 12, 2018, from 10am – 12pm at Starrett Corporate Headquarters located at 121 Crescent Street, Athol, MA.
October is recognized as Manufacturing Month and thousands of manufacturers across North America participate to educate millions about modern manufacturing and generate interest in the manufacturing trades to build a stronger, skilled workforce. Starrett will be giving guided tours at its facility in Athol. Attendees will learn how a Starrett punch is manufactured from start to finish, and contests will be held during each tour. Tours will begin with showing a "How It's Made" video. There will also be several fascinating precision measurement demonstrations and manufacturing technology discussions designed to educate and inspire. Popcorn will be served at the end of each tour.
