headerFLATE has built a web portal for students in middle and high schools where they can learn about the wonderful, profitable opportunities in considering manufacturing as a career choice. Every day, we enjoy things that many people don’t realize were made in Florida. Behind every product and technology we use, there is a world of manufacturing. Today, in Florida, more than 14,000 different companies and 355,000 people work in the manufacturing field. The site has areas of information and resources for students, educators and industry.  Visit MadeInFlorida.org
