The first Friday of every October, companies across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico celebrate National Manufacturing Day. This year, the event takes place on October 7th with over 2,340 events. National Manufacturing Day is a day for companies to open their doors to the public and school STEM programs in an effort to better educate visitors about what manufacturing is and what it isn’t. It’s a time for people to explore the workplace, get a better understanding of manufacturing overall, and see just how much manufacturing impacts our daily lives. Communities nationwide thrive when manufacturing is flourishing.
National Manufacturing Day is co-sponsored by Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International®, National Association of Manufacturers, Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and the Manufacturing Institute. Their goal in creating National Manufacturing Day was to combat misperceptions surrounding the industry, address an impending skilled labor shortage, and establish a solid path for the future of manufacturing.
