Locals rave about tours of McCain’s largest US production facility.
Last Friday, October 3rd, McCain welcomed more than 50 local students, professionals, and politicians for tours at its largest US manufacturing plant in honor of National Manufacturing Day. Participants were given a unique glimpse behind-the-scenes of our expansive 100,000-square-foot facility, where they discovered how sheets of metal are flawlessly transformed into everyday products.

National Manufacturing Day was established to change this and give people an opportunity to see firsthand what modern manufacturing is all about.
The resurgence of US manufacturing is underway. From lower shipping costs to regional manufacturing centers, here are four reasons why we think it’s here to stay.
