A National Manufacturing Day is being held to educate and improve public perception of manufacturing careers and the value of manufacturing to the U.S. economy. The day is designed for students, parents, educators, media, customers, suppliers and the community at large. On October 5th, participating facilities will open their doors for public tours, career workshops, and other events where visitors will learn about real career opportunities, training, and resources. In addition, manufacturers will learn about business improvement resources and services delivered through manufacturing extension partnerships. The event is being co-produced by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International, the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Association of Manufacturers, and the Manufacturing Institute. The Conference on the Renaissance of American Manufacturing, a bipartisan coalition dedicated to reviving American Manufacturing, whose members include King & Spalding, is a co-sponsor and endorser of the event.
