Manufacturing Day was created by national leaders to unite thousands of companies, large and small, to showcase modern industry to students, teachers, job seekers and community figures. Manufacturing is growing at a rapid pace, however, there is a shortage of talent to fill the roles. It is expected that nearly 3.5 million new manufacturing jobs will be needed by 2025, but 2 million of these roles may go unfilled.
As the leading provider of differentiated paper and packaging solutions, we know the success of the quality, innovative products we make every day hinges upon the manufacturing skillsets of our talented employees. This year, WestRock is hosting six Manufacturing Day events in New York, Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida. We want people to see the attractive packaging industry first-hand, along with the highly motivated individuals that make it successful.
