CANFIELD, Ohio - Friday was Manufacturing Day, a chance for places like Youngstown State University and the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center to show just how much the industry is changing.
"We can't-do the same old manufacturing. It has to be the newer stuff that is more flexible. It's faster, it brings better material properties and it's less expensive," said YSU Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Technology Brian Vuksanovich. "A lot of people don't even know that this type of job exists. So how are they going to apply for a job that they don't even know what it is."
