The 8th Annual Made In Redmond tour will be Friday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m. to noon, in coordination with MFGDay events.

Join Redmond Economic Development Inc. on a behind-the-scenes tour of three local manufacturing companies that contribute to the Redmond economy.

This year, one may visit on site at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center or through a virtual tour online. Choose virtually by web stream in your home or office; or in-person at the watch party. To comply with restrictions on gatherings, limited seating is available for the watch party. Either way you choose to attend, you’ll discover why Redmond is a place where “Creators are Wanted,” according to a press release.

At this year’s Made in Redmond Tour, REDI is converting the center circle area at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds into an outdoor living room. It will stream in virtual tours, giving attendees a glance at the inner workings of local companies creating their products. The outdoor location will be set up complete with socially distanced seating, LED screens and a sound system.

During the programming, the virtual tours will be followed up with audience Q&A.

Featured companies are:

  • Poltex. Created by a former hospital laboratory scientist, with experience in many lab and healthcare areas, Poltex produces organizational equipment for laboratories and hospitals.
  • Risse Racing Technology designs and manufactures high performance mountain bike suspension components.
  • i3DMFG is a market leader in additive manufacturing technologies specializing in direct metal laser melting, wire EDM, and metal powder development.
