On Thursday, October 6, Sarah Miles and Vinh Nguyen of QEMS proudly participated at the Make It in Union County Manufacturing Showcase. The showcase is a chance for local manufacturing facilities to talk about their companies and spark an interest in manufacturing among middle school and high school students. This program, partnered with the Union County Public Schools and the Union County Chamber of Commerce, promotes awareness of manufacturing within Union County and all the opportunities available right here in North Carolina. Other companies participating at the showcase include (but are not limited to) Charlotte Pipe and Foundry, Vanguard Pei Lung, Scott Safety, Greiner Bio-One, Assa Abloy, and many others.
The following Friday, representatives from QEMS (Sarah Miles, Vinh Nguyen, Sarah Hoyle, Phillip Nguyen, Gary Nguyen) also attended the Celebration Breakfast for the event. Roger Collins, the host speaker for the breakfast, is the chair of the NC Apprenticeship Advisory Council for Siemens Energy, Inc.
Our team had a great time with the event and is already looking forward to participating next year as well. More information about the program can be found at http://makeitinunioncounty.com/
