Our company has a special honor related to National Manufacturing day this year, We are so excited to have been nominated in the 2020 Coolest Thing Made in Michigan this year! Hosted by the Michigan Manufacturing association highlights the coolest products made in Michigan!
National Manufacturing day is celebrated on the first Friday of October, and will fall on October 7 this year. Manufacturing is essential to every industry aiding in every step of our daily routines. In the United States alone, manufacturing contributed $2.33 trillion to the economy in only quarter one in 2019 according to the National Association of Manufacturers. MFG day aims to inspire education and company awareness of the essential nature of manufacturing careers. While COVID-19 has affected the US economy and workforce, over the last four years the US has experienced the best manufacturing growth in the last 30 years. The National Association of Manufactures states that there are currently 12.75 million manufacturing workers in the United States, accounting for 8.6% of the US workforce. This demand will continue to increase over the next 10 years.
As stated on the Whitehouse’s website Proclamation:
“Since the founding of our Nation, Americans have been renowned for their craftsmanship and productivity. On National Manufacturing Day, we celebrate our dedicated American workers who carry on this legacy, recognizing that manufacturing is a cornerstone of our economic prosperity and national security. The workmanship and ingenuity of American manufacturers make “Made in the U.S.A.” an enduring stamp of patriotism and excellence, and we will always support the men and women whose work ensures that American manufacturing is second to none.”
