Cooper Tire is to mark its third year as a member of the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) and Manufacturing Institute’s (MI) Dream It. Do It. programme, connecting with more than 10,000 students for Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) events throughout October. Cooper will focus on the communities where the company has major facilities—Findlay, Ohio, Texarkana, Arkansas, and Tupelo, Mississippi. The company will also host its own Cooper Manufacturing Experience events, planned by the company’s Dream Team, a group of 40 employees from across Cooper who work with students year-round to educate and improve the image of careers in manufacturing. With such initiatives Cooper states that it hopes to help strengthen the future workforce pipeline.
