Lancaster Makes #MFGDay

THE MANUFACTURING DAY MISSION Manufacturing Day addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry. MFG DAY is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. The rallying point for a growing mass movement, MFG DAY empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive. WHO’S BEHIND MANUFACTURING DAY? Created by Founding Partner Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, International in 2012, MFG DAY has enjoyed support from many organizations aligned with its mission of positively changing the public perception of modern manufacturing. Organizations that have played a vital role in working with FMA to successfully grow this national celebration of all things manufacturing include the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP). MFG DAY is now produced annually by the NAM with key contributions and support from the MEP and the MI.

A middle school job fair provides a unique opportunity for students to explore their interests, ask questions, and gain a deeper understanding of career opportunities, even though they won’t be potential applicants for years to come. It is critical in today’s rapidly evolving job market that we get welding, fabrication and precision machining in front of them, and ignite a curiosity for a meaningful career.

IronStrong will continue to invest in the future of our youth and create a world where kids have a bright future in manufacturing!

Thank you for hosting today's job fair, Donegal School District & Lancaster Makes #MFGDay!
