Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2015 -- Hytrol Conveyor recently posted an article exploring the implications of millennials in the manufacturing workforce.
There are a wealth of examples of how today's manufacturing industry is now increasingly aligned with millennial's value systems and eagerness for technological expertise. A ThomasNet survey reported, "Millennials have an opportunity to make a social impact working with sustainable and green technologies, solar energy, and wind power. In addition, survey respondents cited innovations in design and manufacturing software, automation, robotics, and 3D printing as intrinsic to today's jobs."
Bob West, Vice President of Corporate Development at Hytrol Conveyor Company, Inc., said, "Millennials are the future of manufacturing; they value having a job that challenges them and want to work for a company that values transparency and honesty. These values directly align with the way that Hytrol chooses to do business. We make sure our commitment to our community and to our manufacturing professionals is always prominent and constantly promoted."
Anthony Martin, a millennial who works as a Lean Facilitator at Hytrol, said that there are several factors that drove him into the environment. "Over the past 5 years, I have learned to value growth within the company in an especially stagnant economy. We have been fortunate to incur tremendous growth of nearly $30 million dollars since hiring on. It has also been very refreshing progressing through the company as well, holding several jobs, all of which were challenging on different levels. The need for both career and intellectual growth has been excellent as I have been able to pursue many certifications and a master's degree in business administration coupled with the opportunity to apply the knowledge to our facility."
