The City of Milpitas is reaffirming its commitment to growing a qualified local workforce this year by again partnering with the Milpitas Unified School District to create the community’s third “Manufacturing Day” on October 4, 2019. This event is a fantastic way to shed light on what advanced manufacturing is really about in the 21st century while also addressing the industry’s skilled labor shortage.

This year’s event will include two of Milpitas’ very own manufacturers, Onanon and Flex, who will open their doors to Milpitas Unified School District students, educators, elected officials, business professionals, and community representatives. Onanon is a fully integrated design, manufacturing and testing facility of electromechanical interconnects and cable assemblies. Flex is a leading global electronics manufacturer that provides sketch-to-scale solutions by designing and building intelligent products.

At the companies, students will be able to see firsthand the wonderful opportunities in advanced manufacturing through engaging presentations, facility tours, and hands-on demonstrations.
