Latest News & Events

Tuesday, October 23, Merrill Institute will host  students to participate in a Manufacturing Day event. 

Students will explore MERRILL’s machining and fabrication facilities located in Merrill and Alma, MI. After completing the tours, they will enjoy lunch, participate in a weld hood giveaway and attend a brief presentation that will demonstrate the shortage of welding talent within the skilled trades industry.

To close the day, students will have the opportunity to participate hands-on utilizing a virtual welding simulator where they are able to weld safely without the actual sparks.
