Nautique hosted high school students from central Florida as part of National Manufacturing Month in October.

The month is celebrated throughout the United States. Manufacturers host events whose primary goal is sharing manufacturing career opportunities with students. Nautique partnered with local manufacturing organizations through its affiliation with the Manufacturers Association of Florida.

The team from Nautique spent the day working together with students, providing them an in-depth tour of the Nautique manufacturing facility, which is undergoing a 50,000-square-foot expansion of the manufacturing and product design and development facilities.

After the tour Nautique provided lunch for the students and facilitated engaging simulation exercises so they could apply what they had learned.

“Our Nautique team was thrilled to host local students at our world-class manufacturing facility,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said in a statement. “This is a great way to expose the next generation workforce to manufacturing career opportunities and highlight products produced locally.

“This creates local pride, economic opportunities and encourages the students to experience firsthand companies that manufacture products in their own backyard. These students are the future of our community and country, and we are happy to share the many opportunities available to them through manufacturing careers.”
