OBMFG will open its doors for plant tours, machine demos and hands-on activities to allow community members to see first-hand the safe, high-tech and innovative work environments that await those who pursue careers in manufacturing.

Students from Bonney Lake High School, Tahoma High School, a group of homeschool students, as well as representatives from Prototron Circuits, MarcTech2, Monsoon Solutions and other local manufacturing industry leaders are participating.
