BRILLION - The state reports 10 percent fewer manufacturing jobs than a decade ago. On Friday, a handful of area companies took a step to try to encourage high school students to pursue careers in manufacturing.

 

More than 150 students learned what it's like to work at Professional Plating, in Brillion, Friday.

 

"We're working with customers like Airens, John Deer, Harley-Davidson to zinc plate to e-coat to powder coat. They do the welding, the punching the stamping. Our manufacturing connection is we plate to meet standards. We make it look pretty with the color," said Larry Dietz, general manager of Professional Plating.
