Students get inside look at manufacturing

Feb 9, 2018, 04:22 PM

As one of the premier manufacturing employers in the region, Honeywell is finding unique ways to reach potential talent including hosting a Manufacturing Night to introduce high school students to the career options available at the KCNSC.

 Through Honeywell’s partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas City, the “Made for Manufacturing” event provided area youth with hands-on demonstrations and one-on-one mentoring with Machinists, Production Fabricators, Assemblers and Lab Technicians. Students saw first-hand the type of skills they will need to pursue a career in the technical trades.

 In the last year, Honeywell has hired hundreds of new people for manufacturing jobs such as assemblers, welders, machinists, and tool and die makers. By the end of 2018, Honeywell will hire an additional 450 employees bringing its workforce to 4,000 to fulfill its national security mission.
