Manufacturing Day


Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers.

Although Manufacturing Day officially occurs each year on the first Friday in October, any day can be Manufacturing Day. The event is meant to introduce the public to manufacturing as a career opportunity. By opening up your facility to your neighbors and school students, you get them interested in your company. They can see close-up what a manufacturing or distribution facility looks like. This can change their perception of the industry and in particular your company. Impress your neighbors and they will remember your company when someone they know is looking for a job.  You couldn’t get a better referral! 

Manufacturing Day 2018 is scheduled for Friday, October 5, but hundreds of events have occurred. In 2017, Manufacturing Day was celebrated with nearly 3,000 events nationwide throughout the year.

PT WORK Force endorses Manufacturing Day because distribution is intimately linked with manufacturing and is an important element of the supply chain.

A wealth of information can be found on the official Manufacturing Day website.
