Manufacturing Day is October 3, 2014



WHAT is Manufacturing Day?
An annual event that occurs on the first Friday of October, Manufacturing Day is an occasion
during which U.S. manufacturers open their doors to demonstrate the potential of modern
manufacturing and to foster interest in manufacturing careers.

WHEN does Manufacturing Day happen?
This year, Manufacturing Day falls on Friday, October 3, 2014.

WHERE do Manufacturing Day events occur?
Manufacturing Day events occur at various manufacturing facilities and educational institutions around the country. Events in everyone’s local community can be found on the Manufacturing Day website’s “Attend an Event” page:
www.mfgday.com/events

WHY is there a Manufacturing Day?
Modern manufacturing environments are commonly thought of as dark, dangerous factories designed for low-skilled workers. Manufacturing Day addresses this misperception by giving all manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing really is in this day and age:

• Manufacturing is technologically advanced, with ample use of automation, 3-D printing, robots, and screen technology.

• The annual average salary of manufacturing workers is more than $77,000.

• Manufacturers have the highest job tenure in the private sector.

• 90 percent of manufacturing workers have medical benefits.

WHO should attend Manufacturing Day events?
Manufacturing Day events are meant for anyone who is curious about modern manufacturing and who would like to know more about what happens in modern-day manufacturing facilities. This includes students, parents, educators, media, civic leaders, and local communities in general.
