Starting in 2012, Manufacturing Day has become a celebration all across the country. It is a day for students, manufacturers, and participants to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. The day is always celebrated on the first Friday in October, which happens to be October 6 this year.
In order to educate communities about modern manufacturing, manufacturers invite people in the area to their facilities to teach them about career opportunities and to improve public perceptions of manufacturing.
