Manufacturing Day

National Manufacturing Day 2018

Friday, October 5, 2018

National Manufacturing Day is observed annually on the first Friday in October. MAMTC celebrates Kansas manufacturers who develop and manufacture products that grow our economy. They create jobs through entrepreneurship, and their competitiveness revitalizes American manufacturing.
On National Manufacturing Day Kansas manufacturers will open their doors and take up the important work of inspiring our young people to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering. Today’s science, technology, engineering, and math graduates will power the next chapter of American production and innovation, and harnessing their potential is an economic imperative.

What is Manufacturing Day?

Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.
