A Celebration of Modern Manufacturing

Manufacturing Day® (MFG DAY) is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers and occurs on the first Friday in October. Every year, thousands of manufacturers around the country open their doors to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. SEMCA and Wayne County partner with Manufacturing Day® to provide inspiration and training for our future engineers.

THE MANUFACTURING DAY MISSION

Manufacturing Day addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.

MFG DAY is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. The rallying point for a growing mass movement, MFG DAY empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.
