NFPA Continues Endorsement of Manufacturing Day 2019

Manufacturing Day℠ (MFG Day) is an annual celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. This year’s MFG Day will be Friday, October 4. Again this year, because of its alignment with our workforce development objectives, NFPA will support events related to MFG Day through our own programs and encouraging member companies to take part in MFG Day activities.

Traditionally, MFG Day celebrations have consisted of facility tours. However, there are other ways to engage students and introduce them to fluid power and manufacturing careers, including:

  • Employee Q&A: Engineers explaining to students what ‘a day in the life’ is like, how they got into the industry, etc.
  • Team Project: Engineers work with students to help assemble a basic, fluid power classroom kit.

According to the MFG Day website, students who attended MFG Day events were “84% more convinced that manufacturing provides careers that are interesting and rewarding.” By engaging in this program, employers can share their expertise with students, promote their companies and career opportunities to the local community, and make meaningful connections with educators.

If you’d like to get involved with any of these options or if you have an idea of your own for MFG Day, contact Stephanie Scaccianoce at sscaccianoce@nfpa.com.
