Welbilt will welcome students to several of its locations across the US in celebration of Manufacturing Day this Friday.
Students, parents, teachers and other community leaders will get a behind the scenes glimpse at the firm’s operations and take a closer look at what goes into creating its award-winning products.
The company will open its headquarters in New Port Richey, FL, as well as four manufacturing locations: Frymaster in Shreveport, LA; Delfield in Mt. Pleasant, MI; Delfield in Covington, TN and Kolpak in Parsons, TN.
Students from local high schools will be invited to join guided tours at the sites, including the Technology and Customer Innovation Center in New Port Richey.
They will be introduced to Welbilt brands and products, equipment design and manufacturing, and gain insights into the wider foodservice equipment industry and the career opportunities available.
Welbilt’s teams of engineers and culinary experts will also be on hand to discuss the production process.
Josef Matosevic, Welbilt’s chief operating officer, commented: “Manufacturing Day is a fantastic opportunity for students to see innovation in action and talk to the experts behind our cutting-edge technology.
