Manufacturing Day 2012October 5, 2012
U.S. Manufacturers — Welcome to Manufacturing Day!
It's your opportunity:
* Tell your company's story * Dispel outdated myths about manufacturing * Inspire a new generation of manufacturers * Connect with potential customers in your community * Learn about manufacturing extension partnerships that can improve your efficiencies and work force skills and boost your profits * Visit other manufacturers to initiate business relationships and learn what is being made in your community
The core element to Manufacturing Day is the schedule of manufacturer's open houses. Manufacturing Day will promote the open house schedule through its planned general and trade media campaign, which will alert thousands of people to the opportunity to visit manufacturers and see for themselves that manufacturing is alive and well in America and needs skilled employees. It will also make it possible for manufacturers to visit other manufacturers in their region that may be potential business partners — either as customers or suppliers.
