SONNY’S to host plant tour for high school students

TAMARAC, Fla. — SONNY’S The CarWash Factory is a global manufacturer of conveyorized carwash equipment, parts and supplies.

TAMARAC, Fla. — SONNY’S The CarWash Factory announced it will host 25 students from Dillard High School’s engineering magnet program for a tour on Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 9 a.m., according to a press release.

The goal is to spend time with the students while on a behind-the-scenes manufacturing tour of the SONNY’S factory, stated the release.

The students will interact with factory employees who will explain what the company does, the daily manufacturing processes, educational requirements for each position and specific skill requirements that students in these programs will need to master to be successful in the real world, reported the release.

SONNY’S will provide the students with an overview of all technical disciplines associated with the manufacturing side of the company as well as a glimpse of the front office departments’ day-to-day operations, continued the release.

“By investing in the latest technology, SONNY’S is able to avoid outsourcing and keep manufacturing here in this 135,000-square-foot facility. We take pride in being a true end-to-end manufacturer of our own equipment,” said Dan Kaiserian, operations manager for SONNY’S, in the release. “We want to show these students that manufacturing isn’t just some dark and dingy plant and that there are careers in a number of areas that are required to keep the machines running. From programming our machines, to manufacturing the parts and equipment, developing new products and all of our supply chain functions needed to get the required materials in and our parts shipped out, Sonny’s has a huge team that makes this all possible.”

Earlier this year, informed the release, SONNY’S was selected as a finalist among only 20 other companies for the South Florida Manufacturers Association’s Manufacturer of the Year award.

This recognition was based on a plant visit, noted the release, where SONNY’S demonstrated a focus on leadership, strategic planning processes, customer and market relations, workforce and operations.
