NATIONAL MANUFACTURING DAY
National Manufacturing Day is celebrated annually on the first Friday in October. It is a day to celebrate those who proudly stand behind our goods and services made in America. Americans continue to create products and unlock new technologies that grow our economy. They create jobs through their entrepreneurship and our competitiveness is revitalizing American manufacturing.
On National Manufacturing Day, more than 1,600 American 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.
Visit a local manufacturing facility and learn about what they do. Start that business you’ve been thinking about. Post on social media using #ManufacturingDay to encourage others to do the same.
While we were unable to find the creator of National Manufacturing Day, it was first observed in 2011. A Presidential Proclamation was sign by Barack Obama in 2014.
