CA can lead the Nation this MFG Day - Oct. 6

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Aug. 21, 2017

If you’ve visited mfgday.com lately, you may have noticed that the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has taken charge of Manufacturing Day, giving it a renewed energy and focus as the national celebration heads into its sixth year.

OPEN YOUR FACILITIES FOR "MFGDay" ON OCTOBER 6, 2017. REGISTER AN EVENT HERE.

Manufacturing in the United States faces all sorts of roadblocks, but many manufacturers say the lack of a skilled workforce is their largest hurdle. A recent report from the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte shows that over the next decade, nearly three and a half million manufacturing jobs likely need to be filled and the skills gap is expected to result in 2 million of those jobs going unfilled. Manufacturing is not just critical to the U.S. and California economy -- it is also a way of life and an integral component of our national identity. This talent shortage threatens manufacturers’ ability to innovate, create jobs and compete in the global marketplace.

That is why CMTA is supporting the sixth annual Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 6, 2017. Manufacturing Day is a national event where manufacturers in the U.S. open their doors to show that 21st century manufacturing is a high-skilled, sleek, technology-driven industry that offers good-paying jobs and fuels the economy. Manufacturing Day is the perfect time to draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a manufacturing career can provide and give future talent firsthand experience with the real world of manufacturing.

Last year, more than 2,800 events were held in all 50 states. CMTA was proud that California manufacturers hosted more than 180 of those events, eclipsing our 2015 number of 120. CMTA participated by attending events and honoring our 2016 Champions Betts Spring, and this year we intend to announce another Manufacturing Champion, maybe two!

We want to increase the number of hosted events this year to continue the day's incredible success and growth. Currently Califonia has 65 companies and institutions registered to host 67 MFGDay events. We will update our readers regularly on the newest companies to register to host events leading up to October 6.

If you’re curious about what your options are for hosting an event, how to get people to your event, or how you can make MFG DAY work for your company, Go HERE.
