Manufacturing Not what it Used to Be

GREENVILLE – “This was very educational… it totally changed my perspective on what factories are like.” Kassidy York and Layne Washington, 10th grade students at Greenville High School, had almost identical reactions to their tour at Ramco Electric Motors Oct. 3.

Kassidy said upon graduation from college she’d like to consider Ramco an option on the accounting side. She was impressed by the company… “There’s a lot more intricate work put into it than I thought. Also it really has an effect on our community.” She added she would rather be on the business side. “I’d like making the customers happy,” she said.

Layne liked the welding part, but added it would also be fun to work on the line. “It’s really well organized, thought out,” he said. “I’d consider working here… I think it would be a good career.”

According to Dave Dunaway, president, about half the workforce is production. The other half is support. He wrapped up the tour for about 20 Greenville 10th graders noting the company is always looking for people… “Consistent people, wanting to do good work,” he said. These are the workers they want. The tour was a repeat of the first half of the morning when Ramco hosted 56 Franklin Monroe 10th graders.

It was part of Manufacturing Day, conducted by Darke County Economic Development. Tenth grade students from all high schools participated, spending half of the morning at Memorial Hall and the other half at a participating manufacturing facility. The manufacturers were Midmark, Whirlpool, GTI, Ramco and BASF.

Students at Ramco got to tour its production area, which included die casting, lathes and grinders, design, assembly and more. Dunaway noted some of the support work includes scheduling, quality assurance, maintenance and trouble shooting. One station is involved in ‘computerized sculpting.’ The operator builds the programs the machines use to do the work. “The algebra and geometry you have to take? We use it every day here.”
