America Makes and Hudson Fasteners Host Opening Doors & Minds A Series of Manufacturing Day Events October 7, 2016
These Manufacturing Day Programs are Designed to Expand Knowledge of Manufacturing, Additive Manufacturing, Rapid Prototyping, and to improve the Public Perception of Manufacturing and Career Opportunities
Manufacturing DaySM is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October—this year is October 7, 2016. Companies and community organizations open their doors and share what manufacturing means to them – the individuals, the jobs, the products, the processes and the impact manufacturing has on the world and the lives of each of us.
One of the main goals of Manufacturing Day has always been to get young people motivated to learn more about modern manufacturing. As we open our doors to student groups, local media, and legislators, we are educating the public about the evolution of manufacturing technology. We are inspiring the next generation of skilled workers, and sharing the story of the great work taking place in Youngstown, Ohio and beyond.
Manufacturing has played a critical role in the Mahoning Valley. There are nearly 1,200 manufacturers in this region. Manufacturing accounts for 14 percent of all jobs in Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana Counties, in Ohio and Mercer and Lawrence Counties, in Pennsylvania. Manufacturing represents $2.66 Billion in total earnings for the region. Manufacturing jobs are good for the new workforce and the welfare of their families and provide healthcare and benefits for our citizens.
The City of Youngstown is the home of:
- America Makes, the future of additive manufacturing and 3D printing
- A world class STEM program at Youngstown State University
- The Youngstown Business Incubator, the 2015 #1 University Affiliated Incubator in the World.
We are the future of Manufacturing in this country. We invite you to help us highlight the great City of Youngstown on October 7th by joining us for the planned events on Manufacturing Day!
