Manufacturing Day

Students learn more about manufacturing
Central Louisiana will again join the national movement to celebrate our 5th Annual Manufacturing Day, October 6, 2017.  This year Louisiana’s Department of Economic Development will also coordinate a statewide marketing campaign entitled “Dream It. Do it.” during the same week and CLEDA will expand it to coincide with a new promotion called Maker’s Day as a continuation of the theme, “We make good stuff.”
Manufacturing Day is an opportunity for our regional manufacturers to open their doors to high school and college students so they can learn more about the many careers available within our local manufacturing sector.  Students are provided with an opportunity to observe operations, ask questions and learn from the experts.  Manufacturers also go into our area classrooms to talk about career pathways in their respective companies.
If your company would like to participate in the 2017 Manufacturing Day tours or classroom presentations, contact Sondra Redmon at or 318-441-3428.
