Citrus Heights council recognizes October as manufacturing month


Citrus Heights Vice Mayor Tim Schaefer speaks during an Oct. 27 council meeting recognizing National Manufacturing Month.

By Mike Hazlip—
The City of Citrus Heights gave a nod to the manufacturing sector by passing a proclamation honoring October as National Manufacturing Month.

The proclamation was introduced by Vice Mayor Tim Schaefer and accepted by Kevin McGrew of Siemens Mobility. Schaefer said the nationally recognized Manufacturing Month raises awareness for career opportunities in the $2.2 trillion industry.

Schaefer read from the proclamation, stating that workers in the manufacturing industry make an average of $82,000 annually, including pay and benefits.

“Over the next decade nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed, and two million are expected to go unfilled due to the skills gap,” he said.

Regionally, Siemens employs more than 2,400 people, McGrew said, noting that more than 40 of those employees call Citrus Heights home.

“Business is booming,” McGrew said. “These are good paying jobs, dynamic careers, and have excellent futures where those folks have been able to raise families in Citrus Heights.”

The company is headquartered in Germany and expanded its Sacramento presence with a 60,000-square-foot facility at McClellan Park in 2016, according to a McClellan Park release.

Siemens manufactures rail vehicles for Sacramento Regional Transit, among other clients, according to the company.
