FMA, all the co-producers, sponsors and participants deserve our congratulations for their dedication to US manufacturing, their support for STEAM education at all levels, including vocational, and for opening their doors to the young generation to encourage them to pursue a career in manufacturing.
I visited an innovative, additive manufacturing company in Indianapolis, 3D Parts Manufacturing LLC, a success story in local manufacturing revival. Kim Brand, company president and co-founder, showed the MfgDay visitors their 3D printers, the range of products and materials they offer, their work in support of STEAM education in Indianaplois high-schools. He and the whole staff were very generous in hosting us.
