National Manufacturing Day addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.
Manufacturing Month CA is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. The rallying point for a growing mass movement, Manufacturing Month CA empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.
We need to get kids excited about manufacturing. …we need them desperately. They’re scratching their heads a lot and getting curious and that’s really what National Manufacturing Day is all about, to fertilize their curiosity.
