Edge Factor producer Jeremy Bout visits the SIGN machine shop.

On Tuesday the engineering and manufacturing departments at SIGN had the opportunity to spend time with Smartmap Expo keynote speaker Jeremy Bout. Bout is the founder and producer of the program The Edge Factor – www.edgefactor.com. A trained machinist, Bout is inspired by the people and places that manufacture the items we rely on in our daily lives.

A few of the ladies from SIGN participated in the Girls Learning About Manufacturing (GLAM) event earlier in the week. GLAM is designed to introduce high school girls to the careers in the manufacturing world. More than 100 girls from area schools participated in the half day event.

September 26 was the big day for Smartmap Expo held at the TRAC Center in Pasco. Sponsored by the Tri-City Development Council, the all-day expo highlights manufacturing in our area. Participants were able to visit booths hosted by local companies, attend seminars, and see displays of items manufactured in our region.
