Korona Participates in National Manufacturing Day

Manufacturing Day (MFGDAY) gives manufacturers an opportunity to raise awareness by simply exhibiting what they do to visitors who are curious about manufacturing. Thousands of manufacturers across the nation participated in Manufacturing Day 2016 by hosting open houses, public tours, career workshops and other events.

This year marked the 5th year of support for National Manufacturing Day in the US --- and the 2nd year for support in the Dublin/Pulaski area. While the first Friday in October is recognized as National Manufacturing day, the entire month of October is also deemed National Manufacturing Month, and embraces the MADE in the USA initiative.

For Korona, the MFGDAY event proved successful attracting "just curious" elder members of the community; "future workforce" students from Pulaski High School Tech-Ed; and "genuine interest" from  job applicants seeking opportunity at the factory.

MFGDay also was a great time to internally recognize Korona employees for all they do to support the company. Custom shirts, lemonade/coffee and cookie breaks and "Proud to Say, Made-in-the-USA" signs greeted every entrance of the building.

Korona Candles is proud to be among the 2,600 events around the USA and one of 22 events in Virginia supporting National Manufacturing Day.  Planning for the 2017 event is already underway.
