Manufacturing Day

Open your doors, rally your manufacturers, engage your community and inspire the next generation of makers and innovators!

Each October, join forces with Dream it. Do it. Missouri to celebrate the amazing contributions that manufacturers make to the state. Help coordinate MFG Day  activities at your plant and in your community. Last year, more than 6,900 students from around the state attended a MFG Day event. We need your help to push this number higher and inspire the next generation to pursue exciting career pathways in manufacturing.

MFG Day was developed in 2012 by the National Association of Manufacturers Manufacturing Institute as a way to open the doors of manufacturers around the country and invite students to learn more about the amazing career potential that exists across the manufacturing industry.

The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry is helping local communities showcase their manufacturing might this October.  Here are some resources to help start you on the path to success with MFG Day.
