When you think of Manufacturing in America, the words offshoring, steady decline, or shortage, may come to mind. It is no secret that within the manufacturing industry today, there exists many challenges. An aging workforce, technological advancements within the industry, and a younger generation rarely interested in a career within manufacturing, have created a major shortage of workers.However, because of efforts, such as Manufacturing Day, there are glimpses of change and hope for a bright future. A recent study released by Deloitte showed that manufacturing was deemed a vital part of economic prosperity.

This Friday, October 6, is Manufacturing Day, a nationally recognized holiday to celebrate the manufacturing industry. Manufacturing Day is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. MFG Day has been held annually on the first Friday in October since its introduction in 2012 and aims to inspire the next generation of manufacturers and offer them a path toward a future in the industry. 

Check out this infographic to see the amazing results Manufacturing Day has produced since it's inception in 2012.
