HUTCHINSON, Kan. (September 25, 2019) – Superior Boiler will open its doors to the public from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Manufacturing Day, October 4, to demonstrate its cutting-edge manufacturing processes.

By hosting a Manufacturing Day event, Superior wants to introduce people of all ages to the promise of a manufacturing career. Our event also will give community members a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at Superior’s day-to-day work.”
