Aggressive Hydraulics in East Bethel will be open on Oct. 4 and Green Bay Packaging in Coon Rapids will be open on Oct. Both tours are from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The public, including students, families, schools, and community groups, will learn first-hand how people make the things we use every day. It’s also a great opportunity to learn more about the high-paying, high-demand careers available within manufacturing.

To register for either or both free tours, which includes food, beverages, and giveaways, visit Eventbrite.com and search Aggressive Hydraulics or Green Bay Packaging in the “Search for events” box; or email the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce, chamber@metronorthchamber.org. Registration is strongly encouraged.

The tours are supported by the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce Workforce Development Committee and is part of Dream It. Do It. Statewide Tour of Manufacturing, led by the 360 Manufacturing Center of Excellence. Dream It. Do It. inspires the next generation of manufacturing talent and collaborates with industry to promote careers in manufacturing in Minnesota.
