MFGDay Manufacturing Institute

Each year, Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) is held on the first Friday in October in order to show students, parents, and the public what modern manufacturing is all about.  The fourth industrial revolution is rapidly changing our world.  New advanced manufacturing technologies bring about whole new careers, requiring a skilled workforce interested in pursuing them.

Together with the National Association of Manufacturers, The Manufacturing Institute, MEP Centers, and federal agency partners, the Manufacturing USA network celebrates the manufacturers who make the products that enrich our lives, strengthen our economic and national security, and provide countless opportunities for our communities and workforce. Find events and get involved. #MFGDay20
