Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October-this year it was October 2, 2015! However, the celebration continues throughout the entire month of October.
Manufacturing Month is geared towards spreading the message that a manufacturing career is not only challenging and well-paying but also very rewarding. This October, both the current and next generation of workers are encouraged to be part of the manufacturing industry.
Manufacturing employers are encouraged to use October Manufacturing Month as a means of spreading the message of how manufacturing is a vital part of the state’s economy. This can be done through hosting tours and visits as well as other events for the members of community. With these events, they will be given the opportunity to see the advanced and modern working environment offered by the manufacturing industry today.
