Celebrate National Manufacturing Day, Oct. 7
Manufacturing Day, which occurs on the first Friday of each October, falls on Oct 7 this year. It’s a celebration of the vital importance manufacturers have in the nation’s economy and in their communities.
This year, at least 30 firms statewide are hosting events, from Altec in St. Joseph to Toyota in Troy. The West Plains SBTDC is also hosting several events.
The national association behind the day says that companies and communities should plan events on the date that works best for them — but that any day can be Manufacturing Day.
The association also urges that these events be registered on their site, no matter the date. Only registered hosts have access to free event planning and the resources of the national co-producers, they say.
