In the United States, manufacturing accounts for $2.3 trillion in GDP and employs 12 million people.
Manufacturing Day is held on the first Friday of October each year with the purpose of highlighting the importance of this significant sector along with the opportunities and challenges within this field. In total, manufacturing contributes 20% of the nation’s capital investment, 35% of productivity growth, and 60% of exports, according to consulting firm McKinsey.
The annual Manufacturing Day event is coordinated by The Manufacturing Institute and helps to inspire the next generation of workers, an especially important focus during today’s changing landscape — which has become more digital and more sustainable — and the cross-industry skilled labor shortage.
Participate in Manufacturing Day 2022
Businesses and educational institutions across the U.S. are encouraged to check out the virtual and in-person resources and events taking place as part of National Manufacturing Day and help inform the workforce of tomorrow about what it means to be a part of today’s manufacturing world.
