Stuller opens its doors for National Manufacturing Day

Students from across Acadiana visit global headquarters

(LAFAYETTE, La.) - Last week, Stuller, along with thousands of other manufacturers from around the country, opened its doors to motivate and inspire local high school students in celebration of National Manufacturing Day (October 5, 2018).

Over the course of the week, students from Lafayette, Iberia, and St. Martin Parishes toured Stuller’s global headquarters to get a first hand look at jewelry manufacturing. Students were able to see the entire jewelry process from metal fabrication, computer aided design and manufacturing, stone setting, and logistics and distribution.

“I have a passion for sharing my experiences. It’s always rewarding for me to demonstrate what we do here at Stuller in the hopes of inspiring the next jeweler, CAD professional or leader,” says Jimmy Bernard, executive director of production operations. “They’re our future and we need to nurture their growth to influence them in positive ways.”
