The South Central Tour of Manufacturing Partnership invites all manufacturing businesses from across South Central Minnesota to participate in the 2017 Tour of Manufacturing. This year we will be expanding the experience and hosting TWO days; Thursday, October 5 from 9 am — 3 pm (focusing on the student population of South Central Minnesota) and Saturday, October 7 from 9 am — 1 pm. The events will be open to everyone. The tour is similar to a “Parade of Homes” that is FREE to students, job seekers and the general public. Community members will be able to stop by throughout the day for a self-guided tour or a guided tour of any of the participating manufacturers.
