We believe manufacturing is an important part of Michigan’s economy and its future. We are proud to help raise awareness of the career opportunities available in manufacturing for students in West Michigan. Hungerford Nichols was part of a committee that partnered with Soapbox Pictures, (a local company), to create this video in collaboration with the Greenville Chamber of Commerce, Greenville High School and many local Greenville manufacturers and businesses to help attract High School students into the manufacturing profession. The committee was instrumental in securing funding, production and promotion of the video.
