“Since 2010, manufacturing has come back very strong, and it’s increasing every year,” said Tim Bleich, president and owner of Vector Technical Inc. in Solon, OH. Vector Technical is a staffing agency that finds and trains people to work for more than 40 local manufacturing companies.
“We actually work with everybody,” said Elaina Muenster, a senior recruiting specialist at Vector Technical Inc. “Men, women, people in school, contract workers, and most recently high school graduates.”
High school graduates like Aminah Abdul-Barr, an 18-year-old who just graduated from Twinsburg High School. Less than a week after graduation, she will be starting her new job as an entry-level machine operator for one of the largest packaging companies in Northeast Ohio. That’s how fast she was able to get a job in manufacturing.
“At first it was my back-up plan but then I looked more into it and thought oh wow, this could be a plan, my real actual plan,” Abdul-Barr said.
