Meet Asia Bright – presented by PwC

Administrative Assistant, Marlin Steel

What do you enjoy most about working in manufacturing? Meeting people from across the United States and even other countries. Also learning about the different machine processes and the procedure of making our products.

What attracted you to a career in manufacturing? I am not sure if I was initially attracted to having a career in manufacturing, but now that I am here, it surprises me that a lot of the companies that I go to, places such as Panera or Royal Farms; rely on the manufacturing industry to maintain their own businesses.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about creating their future in manufacturing? Don’t be intimidated. “Manufacturing” can be an intimidating word when you have no prior experience or no idea what it actually entails. It’s a lot of learning, but it’s worth it.
