Rockford, IL (PRWEB) August 13, 2014

Manufacturing Day™ 2014 received the support of two new Silver and two new Bronze sponsors recently. The following organizations pledged their support to this national movement designed to enhance the image of manufacturing: SME and PMPA (Precision Machined Products Association) became Silver Sponsors while AWS (American Welding Society) and the SME Education Foundation joined as Bronze Sponsors.

Manufacturing Day sponsors provide the resources to support manufacturers participating in the program, a grassroots effort by U.S. manufacturers to improve public perception of manufacturing in America by coordinating awareness-raising activities at a variety of locations across the country on October 3, 2014.

Manufacturing Day is an annual national event, executed at the local level, that supports hundreds of manufacturers across the nation as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers. A panel of co-producers comprised of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (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) provide the centralized support necessary to coordinate this nationwide array of simultaneous events. The national media partner for the event is Science Channel and the national movie partner is American Made Movie.

“The co-producers could not be more pleased that these organizations, which are so dedicated to serving their respective sectors of the manufacturing industry, are putting their full support behind Manufacturing Day,” said Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association. “Their reputation and their reach to professionals in the industry, as well as educators and students, will help to generate participation in Manufacturing Day events across the nation.”
