National Manufacturing Day

Happy National Manufacturing Day! Illinois’ manufacturing industry alone supports roughly $580 billion in annual economic impact driving investment, opportunity, and innovation across the state. Thank you to our manufacturers for all that they do for our state and nation.

In January, Rep. Sosnowski toured Rock Valley College’s Advanced Technology Center in Belvidere (photos below), where the next generation of skilled workers in our region will receive the education and training they need for a successful career. With innovative classrooms and technology in the areas of CNC Machining, Mechatronics, Truck Driver Training, and Welding, the facility is amazing and the passion the faculty and staff have for the programs on campus is impressive.
