On the first Friday in October, manufacturers from across the United States open their doors to educate and inspire the next generation about opportunities in the manufacturing industry. This year General Kinematics participated with the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce “Made In Your Own Backyard” event for students from Crystal Lake District 47. Parents across the county visited manufacturers in the area after school to learn more about what is built right in their backyards. Beaming students and parents arrived at General Kinematics in several filled school buses to take a tour of the GK shop and learn more about the process, jobs and more that are available in the field of manufacturing.
