ROLLING MEADOWS, IL — The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) is proud to be a sponsor of this year's Manufacturing Day. Celebrating the backbone of America, this national event highlights the numerous contributions of manufacturers across the country while educating the general public about the impact and importance of this vital industry.

This year's Manufacturing Day is October 3. A variety of events will take place around the country throughout the day, spotlighting manufacturing's impact on the world while offering an insider's look into a number of exciting organizations. Numerous manufacturers will open their doors to the public, offering tours of their facilities and fielding questions about the nature of their industry. Participating schools will also offer tours and open houses where attendees can explore the classes and resources they'll need to pursue a career in manufacturing.

“AME is proud to support Manufacturing Day and the effort to educate the public about manufacturing and how vital it is to our economy,” said AME President Paul Kuchuris. “What many people don’t know is that manufacturing professionals are highly trained, well-paid people who work on state-of the-art equipment. There are jobs in manufacturing, and we need more people to understand how rewarding a manufacturing job can be."

In addition to AME, Manufacturing Day is supported and sponsored by a number of leading manufacturers and co-producers. With their support, it was estimated that roughly 35,000 people participated in last year's Manufacturing Day through the 834 events and open houses that took place.
