Precision Plus Celebrates Manufacturing Month with Inaugural Youth Apprentice Signing Ceremony, Annual Open House

In celebration of National Manufacturing Month, Precision Plus held its inaugural Youth Apprentice Signing Ceremony, in conjunction with its annual MFG Day Open House, on Thursday, October 20, 2022, at its 40,000-sq.-ft., state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Elkhorn, WI. The event featured a showcase circuit of educational institutions and industry partners, guided tours by their team of manufacturing professionals, a signing ceremony commemorating their newly inducted Youth Apprentices, and esteemed speakers and public figures.

“Our primary goal for events like this is to inspire, educate, and enlighten our community, educational, and industry partners on the advanced manufacturing industry. Additionally, it is an opportunity to showcase the various educational programs and continuous training initiatives we have implemented over the years,” said Ray Jargstorf, Marketing Coordinator. “Our organization continues to lead the way in changing the narrative of modern-day machining while educating and shaping the next generation of manufacturing professionals.”

Precision Plus’s MFG Day 2022 Showcase Circuit featured educational and industry partner exhibits that educated guests on the significance of manufacturing, real-world applications, and the variety of careers the industry has to offer. Exhibitors included the Elkhorn Area School District, Gateway Technical College, the Milwaukee School of Engineering, the Precision Machined Products Association, Doig Corporation, Morris Midwest Group, Tsugami America and Parker Hannifin.

During the guided tours led by a team of manufacturing professionals, guests had the opportunity to see first-hand the production process for various precision machined components and solutions that Precision Plus produces for its clients in the medical, dental, military, firearms, industrial and pneumatic industries. This included stops at their quality assurance lab, Swiss cam machines, Swiss CNC lathes, as well as other precision machining and support equipment.

 The evening continued with the organization’s inaugural Youth Apprentice Signing Ceremony, which included remarks from Amy Pechacek, Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Secretary, and U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil. Pechacek and Steil discussed the significant impact that Youth Apprenticeship and Intern programs, like the one at Precision Plus, have on the continued development of Wisconsin’s workforce and overall economic success. 

The newly inducted YAs were met onstage by their families in a ceremonial jersey and hatting presentation that symbolized Precision Plus’s commitment to their successful journey in the precision machining and advanced manufacturing industries.

“One of the most fulfilling aspects of my role in Human Resources is to showcase the amazing careers available in manufacturing with the next generation of manufacturing professionals,” said Amanda Griffoul, Human Resources Manager, who spearheads the Youth Apprenticeship Program.  “The smiles on the faces of the students as they signed their letters of commitment to our Youth Apprenticeship Program at Precision Plus on Thursday is the driving force behind what makes events like this so special!”
