Luxemburg manufacturers N.E.W. Plastics and D&S Machine Service will open their doors to students next week as a part of the first annual Kewaunee County Manufacturing Career Day. Nearly 300 Algoma, Kewaunee, and Luxemburg-Casco freshmen students are expected to participate in the event that will highlight the many career paths available in the industry. Collaborating with the Northeast Wisconsin Manufacturing Alliance, Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jennifer Brown says this is important day for manufacturing businesses and students alike.
The Kewaunee County Manufacturing Career Day will begin at 8:30 a.m. on October 24, which coincides with nationwide “Manufacturing Month” celebrations. Brown says that 28 percent of the labor income in Kewaunee County comes from the manufacturing industry.
