Among the Minnesota manufacturers that conducted open houses last week was the Quanex Building Products facility in Mounds View, which makes grilles and other products for windows and doors. Each year the first week of October is celebrated as Minnesota Manufacturing Week, and the prime purpose is to raise awareness about the importance of manufacturing. The president of Quanex, Bob Daniels, says the key goal for him is to attract new employees. Cyndy Brucato of Greater MSP Business recently talked with Daniels, who explained that they are even welcoming middle school students to learn about manufacturing as they start planning their career paths.
