Manufacturing Day Tours

Each year, NWILED, in partnership with Jo Daviess Carroll Career Technical Education Academy (CTEA), and Jo-Carroll Energy, hosts a manufacturing day type event. It is an occasion during which manufacturers, trades, and logistics companies open their doors to showcase the potential of modern manufacturing and to foster interest in related careers. All high schools in Carroll and Jo Daviess Counties are invited to participate.
Annually, about 300 students attend this event and are exposed to a varied group of industries ranging from traditional manufacturing to transportation, agriculture, and energy. NWILED thanks the following businesses for their spring 2023 participation, including Adkins Energy, Arrow Solar, Business Employment Skills Team, Carroll Innovative Manufacturing, Dupaco Community Credit Union, East Dubuque Nitrogen Fertilizers, Elkay Manufacturing, Giese Roofing Company, Guy's Truck & Tractor, Highland Community College, Hirschbach Motor Lines, International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, Jo-Carroll Energy, Logistics Park Dubuque, MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions: Metform, Riverport Railroad, Sauk Valley Community College, and Signcraft Screenprint.
