The Right Place, Inc. and Newaygo County Regional Education Service Agency to host student tours for Discover Manufacturing Week
The Right Place, Inc is partnering with Newaygo County Regional Education Service Agency and five local employers to host student tours in honor of Discover Manufacturing Week. Discover Manufacturing Week, part of the national MFG DAY initiative, is a coordinated, regional effort designed to celebrate manufacturing and address common misperceptions about the industry. It gives manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and introduce communities to modern manufacturing through facility tours, open houses, block parties, and more.

Discover Manufacturing Week in Newaygo County will be comprised of 10 different tours and over 200 students. The tours will be held October 4th and 5th with the following five employers:
