Manufacturing Day sponsors provide the resources to support manufacturers participating in the program, a grassroots effort by U.S. manufacturers to improve public perception of manufacturing in America by coordinating awareness-raising activities at a variety of locations across the country on October 4, 2013.

Manufacturing Day is an annual national event, executed at the local level, that supports hundreds of manufacturers across the nation that host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers. A panel of co-producers comprised of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM) provide the centralized support necessary to coordinate this nationwide array of simultaneous events. The national media partner for the event is the Science Channel.

“The co-producers are pleased to welcome both Foley & Lardner, which works on such an integral level with all sectors of the manufacturing industry, and American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers as 2013 sponsors,” said Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association. “Their focus on manufacturing as a twenty-first-century enterprise, their reputation, and their reach to professionals in the industry will help to generate participation in Manufacturing Day events across the nation.”
