DECATUR, IL (WCIA)– Decatur began celebrating Manufacturing Week on Monday. Due to the pandemic most of the events have moved online.
The Economic Development Corporation of Decatur said it’s still a great way to pay homage to the city’s factory workers, and a great way to inspire people to pursue the field.
“We have over 10,000 people in Decatur that are employed in manufacturing,” Andrew Taylor said. “That’s 22 percent. We’re a community that makes things so it’s important that we celebrate.”
On Tuesday they’ll be doing a Facebook Live Stream with O’Shea Builders.
