“Manufacturing Day” Announces New Website

Additional resources are said to make it easier to participate in the annual celebration of manufacturing.

The partners responsible for producing Manufacturing DaySM at the national level have announced the refresh of its website, mfgday.com. The upgraded site boasts more resources for sponsors, companies, supporters and volunteers, making it easier than ever to participate in this year’s annual celebration of manufacturing, which is scheduled for Friday, October 2, 2015.

Users can now sign up to host events, find Manufacturing Day events in their areas, and learn more about sponsorship opportunities through the newly updated interactive site. With user-friendly links to social media channels, scholarships, and success stories, potential participants, manufacturers, educators and students can better collaborate and access important industry resources.

For three years, Manufacturing Day has celebrated the world of modern manufacturing. The annual event is meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers across the North American continent. In 2014, more than 1,650 companies, educational institutions and associations in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico participated by holding Manufacturing Day events attended by 360,000 people. With the launch of this new site, Manufacturing Day hopes to increase participation and further educate the public about the benefits of manufacturing.
