The Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY) and Partners for Education & Business (PEB) today announced they will celebrate National Manufacturing Day on October 1, 2021. MFG Day, which is simultaneously celebrated by manufacturers nationwide, serves as an annual opportunity to inspire the next generation to pursue the great careers the manufacturing sector has to offer.

MFG Day is focused on strategic events to promote manufacturing to students, parents, and educators in regions throughout the nation. To keep students safe, MACNY and PEB will be sharing virtual content highlighting five local companies and their manufacturing career opportunities, along with two videos from our “You Do What For a Living?” series to showcase the STEM career opportunities that exist here in Central New York.

The MACNY and PEB event has more than 10 manufacturing companies participating as sponsors and will deliver content virtually to our educational partners throughout the state. New videos will be released each week and can be found on our 2021 Manufacturing Month YouTube playlist by clicking here.

The mission of Manufacturing Day is to show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions to connect with local students, parents, teachers, and community leaders. MFG Day also empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.

MFG Day is an initiative of The Manufacturing Institute, with the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association as a founding partner. The Institute’s diverse initiatives support women, veterans, students, and workers through skills training programs, community building, and supporting the advancement of their careers in manufacturing.

As part of Manufacturing Day, MACNY has received a New York State Senate Resolution from NYS Senator Anna Kaplan.

MACNY and PEB would like to thank our 2021 Manufacturing Day Sponsors!
