PMT Joins MFG DAY Movement with October 3rd Event

For the second consecutive year, PMT will join manufacturers across the nation in supporting Manufacturing Day by opening up our factory floor for tours on October 3.

Student visitors from the University of Texas-El Paso watch in amazement as Baxter the Robot demonstrates the future in supply-chain automation during PMT’s MFG Day tour last year. Baxter was provided by Shepard Controls.

A national movement gaining more and more momentum, MFG Day gives manufacturers like PMT a platform to showcase modern manufacturing for what it is today—an innovative, advanced industry, integral to the U.S. economy and offering opportunities for rewarding, highly skilled careers. MFG Day also presents a starting point for continuing the dialogue about common challenges in American manufacturing, like facing the skilled labor shortage and surpassing an outdated, negative industry image. By opening up our factory and sharing our successes—like creating a widespread sustainability initiative and adding automation to the factory floor—PMT joins the movement moving toward solutions.

This year PMT welcomes our customers, our community and our local students to come experience modern manufacturing on October 3. A highlight of this year’s tour is our cutting-edge robotics technology, developed in-house, that is incorporated into presses on the plant floor. PMT’s engineering team has several active projects, as well as many in development, that rely upon this advanced technology. The tour will show how PMT continues to stay competitive as a high-precision plastic molding supplier to the automotive industry, successfully adhering to rigorous quality standards. Visitors will also see first-hand long-term sustainability initiatives and operational strategies in action—protocols developed here that led to PMT’s being named “Manufacturer of the Year” in 2014 by the Manufacturing Leadership Council and Frost & Sullivan.

We join the MFG Day community in encouraging other local companies to open their doors to the public, and invite the El Paso community to support MFG Day by visiting PMT on October 3.
