Manufacturing (MFG) Day History

Manufacturing (MFG) Day celebrates the significant contributions of the manufacturing sector to the economy. The occasion aims to inspire the next generation of manufacturers by showcasing the potential of modern manufacturing careers and reinforcing the value of manufacturing skills sets in today’s economy.

Founded in 2012 by the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, International, MFG Day has since gained the support of many manufacturing organizations and educational institutions willing to offer industry tours, workshops, and interactive programs. MFG Day has become a nationwide day of action, where manufacturers open their doors to students, parents, teachers, and community leaders, enabling them to gain a deeper understanding of the industry’s importance and prospective job opportunities. The Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October but events and activities related to it can occur anytime throughout the month.
