This festival, taking place during October 2019, is offering a series of local events opening the doors of manufacturers to young people, schools and local communities.
An open door policy will allow anyone interested in manufacturing to see for themselves what it is like day to day working in the sector and find out more about the exciting career opportunities that exist in manufacturing in Leeds
The festival aims to raise awareness of the wide range of manufacturing companies in Leeds and help manufacturers attract the next generation of young people into industry.
“I am excited to be a part of this festival. We have a dynamic and happy team on our shop floor & in the offices who are truly engaged and involved in all that we do as a company. This festival will allow us to show the young people of Leeds just how good it is to have a career in factories & companies like ours. This is going to be a ground breaking series of events and we are sure other manufacturers will want to get involved ensuring the future of manufacturing is bright and in safe hands”
Ben Wilson / Managing Director, MPM Ltd
"Our links with manufacturing companies – Agfa, Siemens, Braime, Schneider Electric, Lambert Engineering and many more – offer our students fabulous opportunities. They allow students to engage with industry and the world of work by bringing live projects into the classroom. This has an amazing impact on their learning and enthusiasm for manufacturing and engineering. The support of local partners, their time and goodwill, is key to bringing next generation talent into industry."
