Manufacturing Day 2022

October 7th, 2022, is officially Manufacturing Day 2022. The first Friday in October is set aside to show the public, particularly students and their parents, what modern manufacturing is all about. The fourth industrial revolution is rapidly changing our world. New advanced manufacturing technologies bring about whole new careers, requiring a skilled workforce interested in pursuing them. From bioengineers, to data analysts to robotics technicians, and all of the operations in between, there is a place for everyone in manufacturing! (manufacturingusa.com)

MFG Day is manufacturing’s biggest annual opportunity to inspire the next generation, positively shift perceptions about our industry, and build the foundation for the manufacturing workforce of the future. It empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive. (themanufacturinginstitute.org)

In our home community of Effingham, Illinois, the Effingham County Chamber has organized Trades, Skills & Manufacturing Day for Effingham County area high schools on Thursday, October 6. Trades, Skills & Manufacturing Day is a day to introduce and recognize the importance of these industries and learn about modern-day career options in Effingham County. The day’s activities are meant to change the image and perceptions of the industries while inviting high school students to tour local facilities and envision their future career. Tour hosts showcase different processes as well as the many careers associated in their specific industry. Many of the positions in Effingham County are technologically advanced; utilize automation, robotics, and other state-of-the-art equipment to produce a wide variety of products that are shipped around the world.

Thank you to all of the manufacturers opening their doors for Manufacturing Day 2022!
