MFG DAY is a collaborative effort by a group of industry sponsors and co-producers to promote the manufacturing industry and educate the public about the benefits of working in that industry. This is the 4th year the event has been held where manufacturing businesses, trade associations and educational institutions host onsite events showcasing what they do.
There are over 2,300 events being hosted throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico, so there's bound to be something of interest for everyone! You can search the site by location or by host to find events close to you. Take note, some companies require prior registration to attend.
Check out the following industry suppliers hosting:
Daman Products Co. - Mishawaka, IN
Graco Inc. - Minneapolis, MN
There are some fun companies that are participating this year -
Necco - maker of the famous wafer
Tamarac Brewing Company - Lakeside Montana brewery - I wonder if they need a taster?
The Vermont Teddy Bear Company - what child wouldn't love to tour that factory?
and one that we consider important that helps train veterans in manufacturing careers:
