Nearly a dozen manufacturing companies put their products on display and stood ready to answer questions and talk about what they do during Sheridan’s first-ever Manufacturing Expo Saturday at Sheridan College.

The event was open free to the public and hosted by the New West Manufacturing Partnership, an industry-led cohort of manufacturing companies in the area.

Kassi Trujillo-Adams, who’s the convener for the New West Partnership, said New West had a couple of goals planned for the event.

She said manufacturing is a really important economic driver in this region, that provides a lot of interesting and meaningful careers for people within the community.

Exhibitors included EMIT Technologies, Weatherby and Kennon Products among others.
