Friday, October 4, 2013, is National Manufacturing Day. Local manufacturers, along with more than 700 companies nationwide, will host open house events to demonstrate what manufacturing is and what it isn’t. The goal for Manufacturing Day is to change the public image of manufacturing and promote it as a viable career option for future generations.
