National Manufacturing Day is observed annually on the first Friday in October. Kansas Manufacturing Solutions celebrates Kansas manufacturers who develop and manufacture products that grow our economy. They create jobs through entrepreneurship, and their competitiveness revitalizes American manufacturing.
This year, MFG Day will host many in-person events as well as a strong emphasis on engaging digital and virtual events throughout the country. With manufacturing careers at the heart of some of the most impactful work being done in response to the pandemic, we are excited to shine a spotlight on manufacturing careers. Today’s science, technology, engineering, and math graduates will power the next chapter of American production and innovation, and harnessing their potential is an economic imperative.

What is Manufacturing Day?

Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly recently recognized the importance of the manufacturing industry by signing a proclamation declaring Friday, October 1sy as "MFG Day" in our great state of Kansas.
