“Manufacturing is more than just putting parts together. It’s coming up with ideas, testing principles and perfecting the engineering, as well as final assembly.” ~James Dyson
Manufacturing Day is is approaching on October 3rd, and we’re encouraging all of our partners, clients and associates to open their doors and share the experience of manufacturing with our youth.
To recognize manufacturing’s significance and spread the word, our Tampa office is working with Florida Advanced Technological Education Center and local elementary schools to communicate the message to a younger demographic. There are also useful ideas and additional information on the Manufacturing Day site.
“MFG DAY addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.
Supported by a group of industry sponsors and co-producers, MFG DAY is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. The rallying point for a growing mass movement, MFG DAY empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.” (Source)
