MFG Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing Day occurs on the first Friday in October — this year Manufacturing Day is Oct 2, 2020!

Companies and community organizations should plan their events on the date in October that works best for them. No matter the date, events should be registered on the site and can be marked as public or invitation-only events. Registered event hosts have access to free event planning and execution resources and toolkits to make planning a Manufacturing Day event easy!

PLASTICS 2020 MFG Day Toolkit -- This toolkit is your resource to plan a successful MFG Day event from start to finish. Explore the toolkit to find planning and social media tips, a sample letter to your local and state officials, a draft press release and more.

We are proud to boast that over 60 Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) member companies put together some fantastic events for last year and we want you to join them for #MFGDay20. To do that, we want you to equip you with the best resources to succeed. 


MFG Day is hosted by the National Association of Manufacturers and the Manufacturing Institute. Together they have launched the Creators Wanted campaign, an unprecedented national effort to build the modern manufacturing workforce of tomorrow.
