Manufacturing Day 2022

1 MIN READ

Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It’s a celebration that provides an opportunity to showcase all that manufacturing has to offer, and what it means for our country, our economy, and the lives of millions of Americans.  This year for Manufacturing Day Cambridge had the privilege of hosting students from the Francis Howell school district. These students are individuals that are interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing or are intrigued by what options exist. They were able to take a tour of the plant, and engage with a few current Cambridge employees. Our team members shared their own career paths and what their experience has been like in the manufacturing industry.  Cambridge also had internal celebrations for Manufacturing Day. We made it into a week of celebration to show appreciation for our hardworking team.

Achieving SHARP certification (Safety and Health Recognition Program) is one of the most prestigious honors a small business can receive.

When we realized that we were going to have to address the COVID-19 situation at Cambridge Air Solutions from a corporate standpoint, we started a Steering Committee, as I am sure many of you did. Our COO/CFO was part of this committee and he stated up front that the Committee needed to act within four core principles, Wellbeing, Generosity, Creativity and Transparency. These principles fall into line with our “We exist to glorify God by enriching every life we touch.” But how exactly do you “Enrich Lives” when things are changing faster than you can react?
