Join us for Manufacturing Day 2019

July 18, 2019




Manufacturing Day has been designed to expand knowledge about and improve general public perception of manufacturing careers and manufacturing’s value to the North American economy. The official date for this annual celebration of manufacturing is Oct. 4, 2019. However, any day can be Manufacturing Day, so select a date during that week that works best for your company.

Host An Open House

As a manufacturer it’s your opportunity to:

  • Tell your company’s story
  • Inspire a new generation of manufacturers
  • Learn about manufacturing extension partnerships that can improve your efficiencies and workforce skills and boost your profits
  • Dispel outdated myths about manufacturing
  • Connect with potential customers in your community

The core element to Manufacturing Day is the schedule of manufacturer’s open houses. Manufacturing Day producers will promote the open house schedule through general and trade media campaigns which will alert thousands of people to visit manufacturers and see that North American manufacturing is a vibrant career path and employers need skilled workers.
