Each year, the manufacturing industry comes together in order to celebrate our industry. According to its website:

“Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration of modern manufacturing during which manufacturers invite their communities — including students, educators, business people, media and politicians — to their facilities in a collective effort to educate visitors about manufacturing career opportunities and improve public perceptions of manufacturing.”

Manufacturing Day always occurs on the first Friday in October. This year, it falls on Friday, October 6. Across the country, you’ll find manufacturers holding educational workshops, industry conferences, expert panels, employee appreciation days and other inspiring events.

In honor of Manufacturing Day, we’ve compiled an infographic highlighting the current state of the industry in the U.S.
