Studies show that almost 80 percent of Americans believe manufacturing is important to our economic prosperity, standard of living, and national security. Yet only 30 percent of those surveyed would encourage their children to go into manufacturing careers. This is a trend that must be reversed and which Manufacturing Day seeks to address by giving more people an opportunity to discover what modern manufacturing environments are really like.

Manufacturing Day is an annual event that encourages hundreds of manufacturers in North America to host students, teachers, parents, job seekers, and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
