LAFAYETTE, La. - On Friday, Stuller, along with thousands of other manufacturers around the country, opened its doors to motivate and inspire high school students in celebration of National Manufacturing Day.

Students from North Central High in St. Landry Parish 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.

"National Manufacturing Day is an opportunity for Stuller to promote the importance of manufacturing at a local level," said Rene DeMoura, director of research and development. "These students are the next generation of manufacturing professionals, and we need to nurture their growth to influence them in positive ways."
