NAM's State of MFG tour coming to California!

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Feb. 13, 2018

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) recently kicked off its 2018 State of Manufacturing Tour and comes to California this week, visiting numerous modern manufacturing facilities and schools along the way.

"The national manufacturing renaissance is occurring across the country and the nature of work is changing the way manufacturers operate, said CMTA president Dorothy Rothrock. “We are so excited to show off six of California’s many cutting edge modern manufacturers during the Tour."

During the Tour’s California stop on February 20 and 21, NAM president Jay Timmons and CMTA staff will join San Francisco and Silicon Valley manufacturers, SFMade, employees, students, media, community leaders and elected officials to discuss the rewarding opportunities in manufacturing across the country and the urgent need to build the modern manufacturing workforce.

The Tour will stop at a wide spectrum of state-of-the-art manufacturers including Ritual Roasters, Social Imprints, JUST (formerly Hampton Creek), Circa of America, NextFlex, and PACCAR.  You can either attend the events or you can watch the events on Facebook Live. Details here.

"Innovation is transforming the way manufacturers operate, and there is an urgent need for talented and skilled men and women on our shop floors and in our facilities working as coders, technicians, craftspeople, designers, marketers and so much mor, said NAM’s Jay Timmons. "Our focus on this tour is telling the story of modern manufacturing and the incredible opportunities we have for well-paying, rewarding careers.”
