Black Bros. Helps Students “Discover Manufacturing”

Black Bros. welcomed area students to its headquarters as part of the annual Discover Manufacturing Career Expo on Tuesday, Oct. 25. The event exposes high schoolers to potential job pathways and the skills needed to successfully enter the world of manufacturing in north central Illinois.

About 20 high schoolers were presented with a brief overview of the 140-year-old company, given a top-to-bottom tour of its multifaceted facility, and shown a live demonstration of its coating and laminating equipment.

Event organizers’ goal is to present participants with opportunities that satisfy a wide range of career interests — from engineering and mechanics to sales and communications. Fifteen schools and over 200 students participated, along with multiple manufacturing firms.

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
