Manufacturing Day

Florida Manufacturing Month: October 2023

The goal of Manufacturing Day is to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Held annually on the first Friday in October with events that continue throughout the month and throughout the year, Manufacturing Day priorities as listed by the Manufacturing Institute are to:

  • Change the perception of careers in manufacturing to reflect its true status as the most advanced, high-tech industry in the country.
  • Re-establish the U.S. as the global leader of manufacturing education.
  • Advocate for education and job training policies that strengthen the U.S. manufacturing workforce.

The ultimate goal is to help manufacturers build a steady pipeline of qualified and diversified manufacturing talent to help build and support local economies for decades to come.
