FIT students learn the ropes at DownRight
November 13, 2017,
Brooklyn, N.Y. – DownRight recently played host to a group of students from FIT’s Home Products Development program.
Juniors and program chairperson Shannon Maher got a first-hand look at the bedding manufacturer’s production process. “Home products are usually imported, and it is a rare opportunity to see the manufacturing process firsthand,” she said.
The visit included stops at various machines and stations along with a lively question-and-answer session. The tour was topped off with coffee, juice and home-style rugelach baked in Brooklyn. Each student received a DownRight “Astra” pillow as a take-home gift.
“DownRight appreciates the opportunity to give back to the community, and to work with such a talented group of students,” said Mordechai Fried, president.
