ATHOL, MA  — The L.S. Starrett Company will open its doors again this year to welcome students, state representatives and the community to participate in Manufacturing Day from 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 12, at Starrett Corporate Headquarters located at 121 Crescent St., Athol, MA.

October is recognized as Manufacturing Month, so Starrett will be holding a Manufacturing Day on Oct. 12. Thousands of manufacturers across North America participate in Manufacturing Day to educate millions about modern manufacturing and generate interest in the manufacturing trades in order to build a stronger, skilled workforce. Starrett will give guided tours at its facility in Athol. Attendees will learn how a Starrett punch is manufactured from start to finish, and contests will be held during each tour. Tours will begin with showing a "How It's Made" video. There will also be several precision measurement demonstrations and manufacturing technology discussions. Popcorn will be served at the end of each tour.
