Episode 35: Manufacturing Day 2014

s2-e14-mfg-day

MFG 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.

In just three years, National Manufacturing Day has achieved more than 1,600 manufacturing plant tours and events with an estimated 100,000+ attending. On October 2nd, President Barack Obama issued a presidential proclamation declaring October 3, 2014 National Manufacturing Day.

The three original founders and thought leaders of Manufacturing Day, Mr. Ed Youdell from Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, International, Mark Troppe, Acting Director, Program Development and Manager of Strategic Partnerships with NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program, and Ned Monroe, Senior Vice President of External Relations for the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) joined our program to discuss the state of manufacturing.
