Pace Industries Gives Students Look at Die Casting Industry

Thanks to the NADCA Nov. 6, 2014 Newsletter 

Grant Sloan of Ozarksfirst.com reported that Pace Industries, Harrison, AR, was among the some 1500 companies across the country that hosted high school students earlier this month for National Manufacturing Day. Following the interest of the first Manufacturing Day they opted to host a second one.

"I've always kind of known what the inside of the factory was like, but this was a much better description," says Yellville Junior, Lexii Knox. 

The technology-based equipment used in Pace’s die casting facility is something sales coordinator Chris Barnard says is a perfect fit for the next generation. 

"To get new fresh workers in here that are technologically savvy is very important," says Barnard. "It's going to be the turn of the industry."

Roughly 80% of manufacturing companies across the country say they have problems pulling in skilled workers. In Arkansas, manufacturing makes up 90% of the state's exports - which is why Pace is opening its doors to help change some of the misconceptions. While manufacturing pulls in nearly 15 billion dollars a year for the state, Pace Industries is hoping these tours will do more than help grow the industry. 


"It's not what it was 25 years ago," says Chris Barnard. "That when you come to manufacturing it's a career, and it's a place for growth, to help out the community and to keep jobs in small towns."
