Rockford Systems, LLC. will be commemorating National Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) on October 4, 2019 by hosting an Open House in its new facilities located at 5795 Logistics Parkway in Rockford, Illinois. Scheduled to run from 8:00am to 4:00pm, the free event features a manufacturing and safety presentation in the company's training center, an interactive demonstration of safeguarded machines and combustion safety solutions, a laser-scanner maze, a SolidWorks CAD demo, and discussion of important machines and tools used in the manufacturing process. Throughout the day, students will have the opportunity to discuss careers in the dynamic, fast-changing field of modern manufacturing. In addition, several other manufacturers and local suppliers to the company will have booths on display for guests to view.
MFG Day was founded in 2012 by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association to address common misperceptions about manufacturing and to give companies like Rockford System an opportunity to open their doors and show, at a local level, what manufacturing is and what it isn't. Rockford Systems hosted its first MFG Day Open House in 2017.
