Hundreds of residents and visitors are expected to see the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park in a new light this weekend when the Door County Economic Development Corporation hosts its Manufacturing Days. Gone are the days of dirty, low paying and low skilled jobs as manufacturing companies adapt to more high-tech and more automated ways of producing products. DCEDC Executive Director Caleb Frostman hopes people get a chance to see what it is often an undermarketed and underexposed field in Sturgeon Bay.
Students from the four mainland schools will be placed in groups on Friday to check out some of the nine different businesses participating in Manufacturing Days. The general public is invited to check out the facilities for free for themselves on Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon.
