Nautique give plant tour to Florida students

Nautique hosted students from central Florida high schools last week as part of National Manufacturing Day.

Manufacturers across the country celebrate the day with events whose primary goal is sharing career opportunities with students. Nautique partnered in its event with several local organizations, including the Manufacturers Association of Florida.

The team from Nautique spent the day interacting with students and giving them an in-depth tour of the company’s manufacturing facility. After the tour Nautique provided lunch for the students and facilitated engaging simulation exercises so they could apply some of what they learned.

“Our Nautique team was thrilled to host local students at our world-class factory for National Manufacturing Day,” Nautique president/CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “These students are the future of our country and we are happy to share the many opportunities they can have through manufacturing careers.”
