Happy National Manufacturing Month!

Happy National Manufacturing Month! 

Launched annually on the first Friday in October, the goal of Manufacturing Month is to show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers, and community leaders.

Rogers County is proudly home to numerous global manufacturing facilities, as well as one of the largest, most inland river ports in the United States. Products created in Rogers County impact all major industries, from energy to agriculture, aerospace transportation, and many more. 

Additionally, Rogers County’s manufacturing sector remains a leading employer, with nearly 6,500 individuals currently employed in industrial-related occupations and a growing workforce demand. 

According to the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte, there will be four million manufacturing positions between now and 2030, with an average annual income of $88,406. Therefore, it is imperative, now more than ever, that we educate both students and adults on the possible career pathways, opportunities for growth and skill sets needed to find success in manufacturing. 

Events are taking place across Rogers County throughout the month to help showcase the diversity of our industrial sector and the quality job opportunities available. In addition, some of our manufacturing partners will be in local classrooms throughout the month, providing students with an insight into the daily operations within an industrial facility and the many jobs available. We will highlight these visits and other exciting manufacturing celebrations on the CIEDA Facebook page throughout the month. 

I would like to take a moment to thank and acknowledge the many industry leaders and innovators who choose to call Claremore home. Their presence in our community creates hundreds of quality job opportunities for residents and serves as a critical economic driver. 

Today's manufacturing looks very different than even a decade ago, and creators are wanted. If you are interested in discovering more about the local opportunities available within this thriving sector, visit careers.growclaremore.com. 

Enjoy your weekend!
