OTTAWA – October is Manufacturing Month (aka MFG MONTH, visit www.mfgmonth.ca) in Canada but this year it’s part of a larger, more expansive North American celebration. It’s an ideal opportunity to show your community what your company makes and what it’s made of by staging open house events through the month.
Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) is collaborating with the US associations involved in Manufacturing Day (aka MFG DAY) to spread the word that what your companies do is key to the well being of our communities and national economies.
Co-producers who are promoting MFG DAY in the US include the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).
The idea is to welcome students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at events that showcase modern manufacturing technology and career opportunities.
Not sure how to put an event together? CME and its MFG DAY partner associations have put together easy to follow kits and resources to help you stage open houses.
Also register at edufactor.org (which combines storytelling and educational resources highlighting in-demand careers in manufacturing) to access the ROCK MFG DAY (MONTH) Kit.
