What is Manufacturing Day?
Launched annually on the first Friday in October with events that continue throughout the month,
MFG Day, a nationwide event shares the reality of modern manufacturing careers by having manufacturers
open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders. Additionally, MFG Day empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.
Here in Hawaii, MFG Day is supported by a proclamation from Governor David Ige.
