Adams County may be best-known for the Gettysburg battlefield, but manufacturing is the sector where the highest number of its residents work, its economic leaders say.

Nearly 20 percent of Adams County’s workforce is employed in manufacturing, and the average manufacturing county wage is $47,325, about $8,500 higher than the county’s median wage from all industries, county economic officials say, citing information from online job-data site Jobs EQ.

To educate their business and community leaders on what manufacturing brings to the Adams County economy, a team of organizations known as the “Advantage Adams” partners are hosting a roundtable discussion on the subject later this month.

It will be held Oct. 31,  11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Gettysburg campus of Harrisburg Area Community College, 731 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg.

The Advantage Adams partners are the Adams Economic Alliance, the Adams County Office of Planning and Development, the Destination Gettysburg tourism office and the Gettysburg Adams Chamber of Commerce.

Robin Fitzpatrick, AEA president, said in a news release she hopes the event highlights the challenges faced in manufacturing while also bringing about ideas to boost her county’s economy. Those interested can register online beforehand.

Manufacturing, along with agriculture and tourism, comprise Adams County’s top three industries. Fitzpatrick said.

Featured speakers for the seminar are:

Mike Granby, president of Red Lion Controls Inc. Granby will highlight industry trends and provide an overview of the future of manufacturing, seminar oganizers said.

Tom Palisin, executive director of the Manufacturers’ Association, York. Palisin will discuss opportunities available to help manufacturers grow and compete.

Leigh Ann Wilson, marketing manager of Mantec Inc., a York-based manufacturing consultant to manufacturers in a local nine-county region. She is to present marketing ideas to the Adams County manufacturers.

"Mantec works with a lot of small- to medium- sized manufacturers where marketing is not part of the business strategy," Wilson told the Business Journal on Thursday. "The world of marketing continues to shift, and is critical for business development.

"Right now, there is a greater push toward internet marketing. If a customer can’t find you on the web, you missed that opportunity," she added.

Lauren Holubec, manager of career and technical education for Harrisburg Area Community College’s workforce development and continuing-education division, who will discuss educational opportunities and industry partnerships.
