General Stamping & Metalworks to host Manufacturing Day events
SOUTH BEND, IN – In celebration of Manufacturing Day, General Stamping & Metalworks will open its doors on October 5th to more than 120 students from the South Bend, PHM, Mishawaka and New Prairie schools as part of an effort to change people’s perceptions about today’s manufacturing environment and draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide. Planned events include facility tours, technology demonstrations, and hands-on activities with GSM’s manufacturing professionals.
Manufacturing Day is an annual national event executed at the local level, supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
To mark the event, Mayor Pete Buttigieg will read a proclamation declaring October 5th as Manufacturing Day in South Bend, IN. Following the proclamation, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski will address the students and share her outlook for manufacturing in Indiana.
“There is an increasing demand for highly skilled professionals in the manufacturing sector who can design, program and operate technology,” said Kathy Crimmins, Director of Cultural Development with GSM. “The average age of a manufacturing employee is 56, and between now and 2020 the shortage of skilled workers will create unprecedented opportunity for anyone beginning a career in manufacturing.”
All press and news media are invited to GSM’s Manufacturing Day event, which begins at 9:30 AM, EST. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Dear Valued Customers, Suppliers, and Business Partners:
We are excited to announce we have changed our name from General Sheet Metal Works, Inc., to General Stamping & Metalworks, Inc., effective September 15, 2016. This change more accurately expresses the core of our capabilities as a full-service metal fabricator providing parts to OEM’s worldwide.
Our new name reflects the evolution of our operational expertise, which shifted dramatically in 1953, when we left the sheet metal business entirely to pursue the fabrication of metal parts for a diverse range of customers producing products for lawn and garden, agriculture, automotive aftermarket, and other consumer-focused industries. Today, we are a major supplier to the solar infrastructure market as well as serving emerging industries looking to prototype and scale new products.
