The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has joined Manufacturing Day 2013 as a Gold Sponsor in order to better support those interested in learning about manufacturing careers and opportunities.
The annual Manufacturing Day event allows students, veterans, and others looking for more information about manufacturing careers the opportunity to visit factory floors, talk to industry professionals, and learn more about the manufacturing industry in the United States. Last year, ThomasNet News attended two Manufacturing Day tours which you can read more about here and here.
Industry advocacy group AAM operates a network of manufacturing companies throughout the U.S. devoted to spreading important knowledge about the manufacturing industry in order to foster better public policy and increase job numbers.
“The Manufacturing Day co-producers are happy to welcome AAM as a Gold Sponsor,” said Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association International. (FMA), in a statement announcing the partnership. “Their grassroots advocacy program has helped to make ‘Made in America’ a viable part of the political conversation again and matches up perfectly with the mission of Manufacturing Day. We value their support.”
Manufacturing Day 2013 will take place on October 4 in factories and classrooms across the country. Manufacturing Day 2013 is produced by FMA, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest-producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM).
