  • By 2030, manufacturers will need to fill more than 4 million jobs.
  • The industry has averaged around 800,000 open jobs per month.
  • This skills gap is in part due to a lack of awareness of the incredible career pathways in manufacturing.

MFG Day, is an annual national event held in communities across the country. It is supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents, and community members to change perceptions of manufacturing and highlight the high-tech and innovative companies that are solving tomorrow’s challenges today.

MFG Day was first held in 2012 by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International. MFG Day is now organized by The Manufacturing Institute, an education and workforce partner of the National Association of Manufacturers. This month-long initiative gives manufacturers the opportunity to address the skills gaps they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the industry as a whole.
