For obvious reasons, Manufacturing Day is always a big deal around here. A celebration of modern manufacturing that’s also meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers is right up our alley.This year it falls on October 7, just over four months from now which means now is the time to start making plans. Something that’s always a guaranteed Manufacturing Day favorite is a tour of an active factory or plant. There’s no better way to make manufacturing come alive to students than to show them where it all happens. You can invite others to tour your facility too. This year Manufacturing Day organizers have suggested inviting local, regional, and national representatives who are running for office to help them understand the realities of the manufacturing industry and how they can best support it. They’ve even put together a special guide to hosting a tour specifically for elected officials. So don’t miss your chance and register today.
