Manufacturing (MFG) Day

Event Date: Friday, October 7, 2022 to Friday, October 7, 2022



MFG Day is officially Friday, October 7, but any day can be MFG day! Annually, there are over 3,000 events held in the USA that take place over the month of October. Events can be virtual or in-person and can include, but are not limited to; presentations, round tables, panel discussions, plant tours, etc. These events provide opportunities for students, parents, teachers, and local community leaders to see and learn more about modern manufacturing.  

It is estimated that over the next 10 years, 4.6 million manufacturing jobs will be needed in our economy. Due to the skills gap, 2.1 million of those jobs are estimated to go unfilled. According to a new study by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, the cost of those missing jobs could potentially total $1 trillion in 2030 alone.


CALLING ALL FORGERS AND SUPPLIER MEMBERS: It is more important than ever that your forging company participates in MFG Day. Create compelling experiences for the next generation and open their eyes to the modern manufacturing world! We want to bring these current students into the forging industry.
