ORLANDO, FL (October 21, 2016) – Today, Nautique hosted students from the Advanced Manufacturing & Innovation Academy program at Lake Mary High School in celebration of National Manufacturing Day. Each year, organizations from around the United States participate in National Manufacturing Day inviting students from their local communities to share manufacturing career opportunities.
Partnering with local organizations including the Manufacturers Association of Florida, Nautique gave students a first-class experience at the company’s world headquarters and state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. After an in-depth tour and presentations from various departments throughout the organization, students applied the manufacturing principals and concepts they learned through hands on activities. Following lunch, they were given the chance to experience the final product on the water. Nautique professional athletes Shaun Murray and Bob Soven gave students boat rides and put on a show behind 3X wakesurf and 4x wakeboard boat of the year, the Super Air Nautique G23. Seeing the product from production to exciting real world application made the experience truly unique.
“The entire team at Nautique was excited to have local students experience our world-class manufacturing facility and processes to celebrate National Manufacturing Day. These experiences give students the opportunity to explore exciting manufacturing careers and establish a sense of pride in first-class products produced locally,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “In addition to learning how our award-winning Nautique boats are produced, the icing on the cake was watching their amazement during our on-water demonstrations and boat rides. Everyone had a great time and we look forward to next year”.
