Stacy-based manufacturer Wyoming Machine will open its doors to the public on Friday, Oct. 5, from 9 to 11 a.m.
The precision sheet metal fabricator is owned and operated by sisters Traci and Lori Tapani, co-presidents since 1999.
The event will include a tour, the products made, processes and machinery used, and information on the role manufacturing plays in the economy, .
During the open house, employees will manufacture a product from start to finish, beginning with a piece of sheet metal. Progressing from station to station, attendees will witness the equipment and processes used, including laser cutting, CNC punching, press brake forming, welding, machining, quality control and engineering.
At each station there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
“We want to take the mystery out of manufacturing,” says Traci Tapani. “This is a chance to learn what Wyoming Machine and precision metal fabrication are all about, to tour the facility, ask questions and meet us. We also want to demonstrate that manufacturing is a very exciting career for women as well as men.”
Well-known in the industry, the Tapani sisters have been featured in numerous trade and business magazines, the Star Tribune and on CNBC.
RSVPs are requested. If you’re interested in attending, contact Margie Simon at 612-210-1789 or [email protected]
