    October 6, 2017

    JVS students in the Computerized Design and Drafting and Precision Machine Technology programs celebrated Manufacturing Day, October 6th, by touring the plant of EMC Precision, in Elyria. Juniors from both classes gained valuable insight direct from the professionals in the manufacturing world.

    Students learned about the history of EMC and toured their plant, which included their quality and engineering departments. Stormy Rush, JVS Computerized Design and Drafting instructor knows the significance of this tour, and the impact it has on her students.

    “This tour gives my students the opportunity to see the other side of manufacturing, which is the hard work and dedication that happens after the initial products are designed and the prototypes are made,” stated Rush. “They get to see the final product produced, manufactured and shipped to the customer.”

    EMC Precision, its employees and the JVS have a close connection, as numerous employees are JVS grads. Luke Wright, EMC Precision Group Leader for the Mill Turn, Assembly, Grinding, Finishing and Honing departments, is a 1997 JVS Precision Machine Technology grad and has been with the company for twenty years. He shared how well the JVS grads are doing at EMC. “The JVS students we have currently are doing an excellent job. They are reliable, dependable, they want to learn, they try hard and they excel very fast.”

    Wright stated, “I hope to inspire the younger generation and these students, and show them that they can do this too, and be very successful at it.”

    John Green, JVS Precision Machine Technology instructor understands that manufacturing has changed and evolved through the years, and the importance of getting this message out to the public. “EMC Precision is a perfect example of high tech manufacturing at its best. This tour is a fantastic opportunity for the students to see what real manufacturing is about.”

    Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers.
