Beginning Monday October 5th, 2015 Bison Gear and Engineering will be exhibiting at Gail Borden Public Library along with other leading local area manufacturers to promote the 3rd Annual Manufacture Your Future exhibit from October 5th – October 9th. The purpose of the event is to reach out to local area parents and students in order to better educate them about the wonderful careers available in the manufacturing industry. Last year, the event drew nearly 20,000 visitors to the library who were interested in the careers manufacturing has to offer. The event includes information booths for all participating companies, tours of their facilities and on-site experts to answer any questions.
Bison will be giving tours of their manufacturing facility on Thursday, October 1st, 2015 and Friday October 9th. Students from Saint Charles East High School and South Elgin High School will attend a tour of Bison Gear and Engineering and get an up close look at manufacturing processes.
