MANUFACTURING MONTH – OCTOBER 2021

STUDENT TOURS OF MANUFACTURING FACILITIES HAVE BEEN POSTPONED TO FEBRUARY 2022.  MANUFACTURERS…PLEASE HOST A STUDENT PLANT TOUR!  REGISTRATION BELOW.

The goal of Manufacturing Day (first Friday in October) and Manufacturing Month is to inspire the next generation of manufacturers, and educate the public at large on the importance of the role manufacturers play in our daily lives and the growing skill shortage despite the high volume of job openings in the sector.

Held annually on the first Friday in October with events that continue throughout the month, Manufacturing Day priorities as listed by the Manufacturing Institute are:

  • Change the perception of careers in manufacturing to reflect its true status as the most advanced, high-tech industry in the country.
  • Re-establish the U.S. as the global leader of manufacturing education.
  • Advocate for education and job training policies that strengthen the U.S. manufacturing workforce.

The ultimate goal is to help manufacturers build a steady pipeline of qualified and diversified manufacturing talent to help build and support local economies for decades to come.
