Posted by Ellen McKewen on Oct 18, 2013 10:52:00 AM

Manufacturing Day 2013Manufacturing Day was celebrated nationwide on Friday, October 4th by over 800 organizations.  It was quite exciting to see the enthusiastic involvement from manufacturers, economic development agencies; community colleges, local high schools, etc.  participate in this special day.  In California, there were over 60 organizations that held events from San Francisco to San Diego.

Manufacturing Day was designed to expand the knowledge about and improve the general public perception of manufacturing careers and manufacturing’s value to the U.S. economy. Manufacturing Day is for students, parents, educators, media, customers, suppliers and the community at large. Visitors to the organizations that sponsored Open Houses learned about real career opportunities, training and resources.
