We are excited to participate once again in National Manufacturing Day: an annual celebration hosted by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and The Manufacturing Institute. This year, we will host events throughout October as part of an ongoing effort to showcase the importance of U.S. manufacturing and increase awareness of the outstanding career opportunities in the field. After hosting virtual-only events in 2020, this year’s events will offer a number of options to ensure students and community members can experience the programs safely.
What to expect:
Events will take place at the following locations:
Manufacturing is an essential industry, but according to NAM, US manufacturers will need to fill 4 million jobs by 2030, and more than half of those jobs could be left unfilled because of two issues: a skills gap and misperceptions about modern manufacturing. Thanks to an increased commitment to innovation, modern manufacturing is constantly changing, but skilled labor is always needed. Cornerstone Building Brands employs skilled personnel across a number of trades: machine operations, mechanics, transportation, logistics, engineering and drafting.
As a leading manufacturer of exterior building products in North America with more than 80 locations, Cornerstone Building Brands is positioned to provide a broad range of career opportunities across a variety of functional areas. We offer positions in manufacturing, construction, sales, project management and shared services such as finance, IT and marketing.
