MFG Day 2019 was Spectacular!

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Oct. 13, 2019

Held annually on the first Friday in October, Manufacturing Day helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to press, students, parents, teachers and community leaders.

Dating back to the Industrial Revolution, much of the United States' economic strength has been built on the back of the manufacturing industry. Manufacturing today has the highest ratio of any economic sector. In California alone, we have wages that average $87k, a manufacturing GSP of over $285 billion and every one manufacturing job supports 2.5 others in the economy.  Beyond the tremendous economic benefits, the innovation and skills you'll find on manufacturing floors in California  is extraordinary and often creates a sense of excitement and real purpose.

California showed off its manufacturing chops this year with more than 275 events. Here's a look at some of the events CMTA attended. Thank you to our members who participated - Bishop-Wisecarver, California Steel Industries, Corteva, General Motors, Northrop Grumman, and more. Even Go-Biz' Lenny Mendonca (top left picture - middle) attended an event to get a sense of the realtime opportunities our manufacturers offer.
