Introduce your students to the world of component manufacturing at BCMC 2019 in Columbus, Ohio!

Career opportunities abound in this $8+ billion industry. From designers to accountants, component builders to programmers, truck drivers to salespeople, there is a need for a wide variety of talent in component manufacturing.

Student Day at BCMC will begin at 1 pm with a guided tour of the exhibit floor by your local manufacturer. Students will see a wide variety of component manufacturing equipment and software demonstrations that highlight the technology and automation of an industry whose products are used in three-quarters of all residential construction. After the tour, students will reconvene for a Q&A session with local manufacturers, SBCA staff and young leaders in the industry. [Read more about past events: 2017 | 2018]
