By February 13, 2018General, Shopfloor Main

Day two of the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) 2018 State of Manufacturing Tour took us to MakeTime Inc., a manufacturing software company that helps manufacturers make money off of their idle equipment by matching them with other manufacturers who can utilize it.

“This isn’t your grandfather’s manufacturing industry anymore,” Kasey Hall, MakeTime’s director of marketing, told the NAM. “The types of jobs and opportunities are much more diverse. We’re showing that manufacturing today is about technology.”

One thing that struck us most about MakeTime was its workforce: its startup vibe office was full of young, diverse employees passionate about technology, manufacturing and how their work is helping others.

We asked seven of MakeTime’s employees to describe what they think manufacturing is in just one word. Here are the answers we got!
