National Manufacturing Day is a nation-wide effort that gives local companies and training providers a chance to showcase what manufacturing is today and helps to address the common misconceptions that exist. By working together, manufacturers and training providers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face and help inspire a new generation of manufacturing employees.
