As part of the October 4th National Manufacturing Day celebration, Pelican Wire is hosting an afternoon manufacturing plant tour and engineering workshop for a group of high school students from Grace Place. Organized in partnership with the Leadership Collier Foundation, students and other invited guests will be given a guided tour of the manufacturing facility, with detailed information on each production process. Students will also receive a presentation from members of the Engineering team about their own academic and professional career paths, with time reserved for student-led Q&A.

Tom Gemmer, College Access Counselor at Grace Place, states “The Academy of Leaders Program at Grace Place for Children and Families is excited to be a part of Manufacturing Day, and of our visit to Pelican Wire. A key goal of ours is to give high school students a broad exposure to post-high school options from career tracks to college paths, and this opportunity fits perfectly as a meaningful experience for our Grace Place students.

“We are excited to be sharing our insights into our products, their manufacturing processes & the application of our wires throughout many industries, including automotive, aerospace, alternative energy, military, etc. These students will see how a very small wire can be a key component to a much larger solution”, says Brinson White, Director of Engineering.
