“Open Doors, Open Minds. Inspire the next generation of manufacturers.”
This is exactly what Anderson Development is doing when we open our doors to the students of Lenawee County. For the third year, Lenawee County participated in Manufacturing Day. This year, Anderson Development welcomed several students on October 4th for Manufacturing Day. The students were provided a tour of our R&D facilities, production plant, and had the opportunity to meet with many chemists and engineers. It is part of Anderson Development’s mission to help students learn about the many opportunities within manufacturing. By doing so, students can see how we apply what they learn in school, the various types of materials we produce and the types of potential career opportunities that are available to them within the chemical manufacturing industry.
