Manufacturing Month

October 2021

Manufacturing Month launches annually on the first Friday in October (MFG Day), with events that continue throughout the month. This month-long celebration illustrates the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students and their families, educators, and community leaders. Manufacturers come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive. MFG Day
