Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2015 -- 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."
Increasingly manufacturing organizations are recognizing younger generations and their contributions to the industry. This year MHI announced the 2015 Young Professional Network Award winner was Gregory R. Conner of Bastian Solutions, a valued integration partner of Hytrol.
Conner noted, "I'm both humbled and honored to be selected for such a prestigious award by MHI. It's a very exciting time to be in the material handling industry. The work our industry does is extremely important for the betterment of the world we live in. Day in and day out we help our clients more efficiently manufacture and distribute the goods and services necessary for people to lead successful and prosperous lives. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be part of Bastian Solutions, a forward thinking and technologically driven company. It's a joy to work with such a hard-working and talented team."
