National Manufacturing Day – 28th September 2023

Mark your calendars, because National Manufacturing Day is just around the corner! We’re excited to be a part of this initiative, collaborating closely with the local council and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to ignite enthusiasm among young individuals for businesses within our community.

Under the guidance of our Managing Director Will, efforts have been underway to inspire and engage the youth of Thetford in the world of manufacturing. The response from local schools has been nothing short of remarkable, with a substantial number of them eagerly participating in this initiative.

On the day itself which falls on the 28th of September, our premises will come alive with the energy and curiosity of 250 primary school children. The schedule has been thoughtfully planned to ensure a seamless and well-managed experience for both our guests and us. Accompanied by their supportive school staff, these young minds will be introduced to the captivating world of manufacturing.

Given the sizeable turnout, it’s important to note that each group of children will have the opportunity to explore one of our factories. While we would love to offer them a glimpse into all our operations, the sheer volume makes it more practical to focus on one. – and we’re committed to making their visit educational, engaging, and inspiring.

As the event approaches, a comprehensive meeting will take place, to delve into the intricate logistics of the day, ensuring that every aspect is meticulously planned. Rest assured, any vital updates or information that we believe you might find valuable will be promptly communicated to all concerned parties.

National Manufacturing Day isn’t just about showcasing what we do – it’s about nurturing curiosity, sparking interest, and laying the foundation for a future that’s both bright and industrious. We’re eagerly anticipating the opportunity to welcome these young learners into our midst and contribute to their growth, as well as the growth of our industry as a whole. Stay tuned for more updates as the day draws closer!
