Aquatherm Industries, Inc. — manufacturer of low- and intermediate-temperature polymer solar thermal heating systems, and supplier of other cost-effective water heating technologies that minimize environmental impact — held its first ever Manufacturing Day Event on Friday, October 6. MFG Day is a national event organized by the Manufacturing Institute and is held each October with the goal of inspiring the next generation of the workforce.

Aquatherm hosted 33 juniors and seniors from Ocean County Vocational Technical School for a series of plant tours geared towards students interested in modern manufacturing. In addition to a plant tour, the students from the OCVTS Engineering Technology Program participated in presentations on all aspects of running a manufacturing company – including engineering and design, production, and administration.

“We hope that by having opened our doors to the OCVTS students, we have inspired them to see how their own strengths and interests could align to careers in manufacturing” says Dan Sizelove, vice president of sales and marketing at Aquatherm Industries. “Manufacturing isn't just about making things; it's about innovation, teamwork and problem-solving. It's a world where creativity meets precision, and students like these can play a vital role in shaping the future of US manufacturing.”

Employment and Industry Development Coordinator for OCVTS, Jenna Rosenfeld, was grateful for the opportunity provided to their students saying, “Thank you so much to Aquatherm for opening their doors to us, and going above and beyond to ensure that our students had a great experience. Not only did they tour the facility, but they got to engage with the engineering and quality control leads, and also use tools and materials that are used to create the product. It is critical for Ocean County Vocational Technical School to be directly tied to industry. Having our students so connected to multiple professionals, in addition to their highly qualified instructors, is part of what sets us apart.”

Aquatherm hopes to expand the event next year to include additional local high schools.
