Myths of Manufacturing - What's true and what is not
  1. MYTH: Manufacturing is obsolete and there is no job availability.

    Fact: With many US companies reshoring 50,000 new jobs were created this year alone! And as the skills gap widens, companies are hurting for skilled workers who can produce quality products.
    - A recent study commissioned by Kennametal Inc.,estimated a 600,000 jobs currently open with another 2.7 million positions to open up in the next decade. 

  2. MYTH: It is a dirty and dangerous work environment.

    Fact: Technological Innovation has turned manufacturing into a safe and clean work environment with the implementation of the modern computer science. 

  3. MYTH: Manufacturing jobs are manual labor jobs in factories for people with little education. 

    Fact: Manufacturing jobs are high-tech, requiring brainpower and innovative skills from a educated and skilled workforce.

  4. MYTH: A College Degree is required to progress in the industry.

    Fact: While a skilled/technical education certainly helps, many manufacturing employees can learn their training on the job.

  5. MYTH: Manufacturing is not important.

    Fact: Manufacturing is vital and essential to the STABILITY and
    COMPETITIVENESS of the US in world trade markets. It provides job security and excellent income to American families. It touches almost every single industry in some way- including the oil & gas, pharmaceutical, marine, cosmetic, food & beverage and electrical industries.

  6. MYTH: A manufacturing job is monotonous and boring.

    Fact: A manufacturing job requires attention to detail, creativity and the ability to problem solve. A normal day for a CNC machinist involves reading blueprints, setting up and maintaining machines, taking measurements and computer programming.
