The roster of Manufacturing Day 2015 sponsors grew with the addition of SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association, which has pledged support at the silver level, the third consecutive sponsorship year for SPI. A grassroots effort by manufacturers to improve public perception of manufacturing in America, Manufacturing Day is an annual event that has grown in support and visibility across the nation.
The 2015 Manufacturing Day will be held on October 2 and features awareness-raising activities at a variety of locations across the country. While Manufacturing Day is an annual national event, participation at the local level provides awareness and information about U.S. manufacturing, its importance to the economic health of the country and the many opportunities that exist for good-paying jobs. Participating manufacturing companies host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
