Tucker, GA — Tucker has scheduled Manufacturing Day for Aug. 25 at the Stone Ridge Event Center, a press release announced.

The event was postponed from 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The event, which takes participants behind the scenes of Tucker’s busy industrial corridors, will feature insights from local and state business and real estate leaders,” a press release from the city said.

A city economic development official said the event will feature big names from the metro Atlanta area.

“This is really a summit of some of the top players in the metro Atlanta region,” Tucker Assistant City Manager and Economic Development Director John McHenry said in the press release. “We are excited to have these folks come to Tucker to meet our industrial business owners and hear their stories of how Tucker’s manufacturing sector is thriving in spite of the pandemic.”

The day will begin with panels moderated by Tucker Mayor Frank Auman.

“The first panel will feature local manufacturers sharing the stories of their success,” the press release says. “A second panel will focus on workforce, with guests ranging from Decide DeKalb Development Authority to the Metro Chamber. Following the panels, participants will be transported to several industrial facilities around the City, giving them a firsthand opportunity to see manufacturing in action in Tucker.

“To attend Tucker’s 2021 Manufacturing Day, participants can sign up on the City website starting on July 12. Stone Ridge Event Center is located at 1750 Stone Ridge Drive.”
