Every year on the first Friday of October, manufacturers across the United States celebrate Manufacturing (MFG) Day, offering facility tours for students and the media, showing the public how various processes work, and taking the time to look back on the year’s progress — both in terms of company advancements and developments in the manufacturing sphere as a whole.
In addition to celebrating the modern manufacturing industry and its critical role in the success of the U.S. economy and in everyday life, MFG Day also celebrates the many men and women who work in this dynamic, ever-evolving industry while aiming to inspire the next generation of U.S. manufacturers.
