    South Valley Member Meeting

    sovalley_013118.jpg

    The SJVMA represents manufacturers across the 8 Valley counties from San Joaquin in the North to Kern in the South. As Valley manufacturing continues to regain strength, it faces increasing challenges finding high-quality talent to fill open positions. Thousands of manufacturing jobs in the Valley will need to be filled over the next decade. To train the next generation of skilled workers more training partnerships are needed. Such efforts are most successful when initiated by industry from the ground up.

    The Valley succeeds when manufacturers are part of the solution.


    Agenda

    • Welcome
    • Starting a South Valley Sub-Chapter
    • SJVMA Priorities and Activities
    • Our Partners
    • South Valley Discussion
    • Q & A
    • Next Steps

    In 1946, when Erma Duncan’s home-based studio where she taught ceramics became too small, the first Duncan® Ceramic Studio was opened in Fresno, California. Erma owned and operated the family business with her husband, Lee, and sons Bob and Dick.

    At the new commercial site, wholesale distributing of ceramic products was added to the mix and first-of-their kind glazes were created and introduced.

    After 23 years of sharing her ceramics expertise, Erma retired from the company. Thanks to continued growth and expansion, Duncan® Ceramics became Duncan® Enterprises in 1976, and by 1983, the third generation of the Duncan family was operating the business.
