Manufacturing Day is October 4: Perception vs. Reality
09 Sep, 2013
The roster of Manufacturing Day 2013 sponsors recently added four more key support organizations, with the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) and the Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) both joining the movement at the Silver level, while Women in Manufacturing (WIM) and the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) have joined the movement at the Bronze level.
Manufacturing Day sponsors provide the resources to support manufacturers participating in the program, a grassroots effort by U.S. manufacturers to improve public perception of manufacturing in America by coordinating awareness-raising activities at a variety of locations across the country on October 4, 2013.
Learn about the perception vs. the reality of today’s manufacturing.
Manufacturing Day is an annual national event, executed at the local level, which supports hundreds of manufacturers across the nation that host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
A panel of co-producers comprised of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM) provide the centralized support necessary to coordinate this nationwide array of simultaneous events. The national media partner for the event is the Science Channel.
“The co-producers are very pleased that these fine manufacturing industry organizations are putting their full support behind Manufacturing Day,” says Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association. “Their reputation and their reach to professionals in the industry, as well as educators and students, will help to generate participation in Manufacturing Day events across the nation.”
