Tackling the Manufacturing Skills Gap

Recently, our President Brian Neuwirth gave a presentation at Ocean County College discussing the challenges UNEX and other manufacturers face in the coming years. A major focus of this presentation was the manufacturing skills gap- a persistent issue that has considerable implications for the future of the manufacturing industry. President Neuwirth argued that how manufacturers like us address this skills gap will ultimately define the next several decades of American manufacturing.

We compiled President’s Neuwirth’s facts, figures, and recommendations into this handy infographic. Overcoming the skills gap in manufacturing is a monumental challenge. However, understanding why the gap persists and the contributing factors surrounding it will go a long way in solving the problem. Check out the infographic below!
