The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), Washington, D.C., has joined Manufacturing Day™ 2013 as a Gold Sponsor, supplying the national initiative with resources to support manufacturers participating in the program.
Manufacturing Day 2013 is a grass-roots effort by U.S. manufacturers to improve public perception of manufacturing in America by coordinating awareness-raising activities at a variety of locations across the country on Oct. 4, 2013.
"The Manufacturing Day co-producers are happy to welcome AAM as a Gold Sponsor," said Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Intl. (FMA), Rockford, Ill. "Their grass-roots advocacy program has helped to make 'Made in America' a viable part of the political conversation again and matches up perfectly with the mission of Manufacturing Day. We value their support."
Manufacturing Day is an annual national event that brings together hundreds of manufacturers to host students, teachers, parents, job seekers, and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers. A panel of co-producers comprising FMA, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST), Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM) provides the centralized support necessary to coordinate this nationwide array of simultaneous events.
