GAVC TO HOST DIGITAL MANUFACTURING SHOWCASE
Galesburg Area Vocational Center hosted a Digital Manufacturing Showcase on February 10th from 10:00AM to 2:00PM as part of the Galesburg Area Vocational Center Grand Opening. The Showcase featured over a dozen national manufacturers. The free event drew students and parents from all over the area to generating interest in manufacturing as a career.
The event was set up like a modern trade show, with each company hosting a booth and showcasing technology and products. In addition, the Vocational Center demonstrated its brand new SMTCL vertical machine center, recently donated to GAVC by SMTCL and Pegasus Machine Tool. This is part of over $500,000 in equipment, software and service donations made to area schools recently in support of vocational education.
