Common myths can often hinder students from pursuing careers in manufacturing, Kondex President Jim Wessing told members of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).

Wessing, who serves on the 2015 AEM Board of Directors, provided a keynote presentation at ASABE’s Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) recently in Louisville, Kentucky.

Wessing shared with conference attendees the positive steps his company is taking in workforce development, discussed today’s modern manufacturing trends, and encouraged the audience to follow suit in dispelling common myths.
