You can look, but we don’t think you’ll find a group of people more dedicated to quality than the Enertech team. But if there’s one thing Enertech employees are more passionate about than quality craftsmanship, it’s getting the word out about our products. That’s why our Mitchell team participated in the annual Manufacturing Day this year.

What exactly is Manufacturing Day? We all know that manufacturing environments are often thought of as dark and dangerous factories, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth! Manufacturing Day is an annual event that addresses this misperception by giving North American manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing really is today: modern, high-tech and highly skilled.

The official celebration of Manufacturing Day each year happens on the first Friday in October. But because Friday may be inconvenient for some hosts, companies have the leeway to choose their own event date. Most take place in September, October or November, but any day can be Manufacturing Day.

The inaugural Manufacturing Day was held on October 5, 2012. By 2014 it included 1,679 events and nearly 400,000 participants, and the organizers expect it to grow even larger in 2015.

We celebrated Manufacturing Day by opening our manufacturing facility doors to the public for a special open house last Saturday, October 3rd. The event was part of a larger Manufacturing Week celebration in Mitchell and several other manufacturing facilities opened their doors throughout the week for tours. Our Mitchell team members provided tours to visitors to give local Mitchell residents and the media a look at how a geothermal system is made. Our geothermal systems are handcrafted by experienced and highly skilled professionals, and our Mitchell employees take a lot of pride in the products we produce and the processes we use. Thanks to the entire Mitchell team for all of your hard work and dedication!

We love showing off our factory because we are proud that our products are assembled by hardworking people in the heart of America. After two plant expansions, our geothermal systems continue to be produced in Mitchell, South Dakota, in our 80,000 square foot state-of-the art production facility. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop on by! We’d love to give you a tour.
