Manufacturing Day

Florida Manufacturing Month: October 2024

Manufacturing Month in Florida will kick off on National Manufacturing Day, Friday, October 4, 2024.  The goal is to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Events sharing information on careers in manufacturing with students are held in October and throughout the year.  Manufacturing Month 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.
