Ever wonder how the things you use on a day-day basis get their bright and shiny look? Wire brushes are a primary tool used in that process. PFERD INC. invites students, teachers, administrators, distributors and metalworkers to stop by our facility on Friday, October 6th in celebration of Manufacturing Day to tour our facility and see first-hand how wire brushes are made. We plan on offering two open house sessions. Our 9:00-11:30 session will be geared towards students, teachers and administrators where visitors can speak with staff about key roles such as Engineering, Quality, Logistics and Customer Service; see our state of the art training facility with live product demonstrations; and tour our manufacturing facility and see how some of today’s automation technology is used to make wire brushes.
Our afternoon session, 1:00-3:30, is tailored more towards distributors, end-users and industry personnel to show them our state-of-the-art training center with live product demonstrations and offer tours of our manufacturing facility to see how we’ve implemented automation technology into our manufacturing processes.
Please RSVP to our office at 262-345-1985 or at indicating which session you plan to attend. Please make sure to wear closed toe shoes during your visit, we’ll provide eye protection. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
