By adding our plant tours to Manufacturing Day's events, we're helping them reach into Georgia as they also promote manufacturing on a national level
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 30, 2015
Manufacturing Day, which will occur on October 2nd, is an event promoted nationally by the National Association of Manufacturers to highlight careers in manufacturing. Featuring plant tours and online seminars, a celebration of modern manufacturing follows Manufacturing Day and lasts through the month of October.
The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance (GMA) has chosen to expand the reach of this celebration by adding four plant tours to the Manufacturing Day schedule in October.
"Because we already host between six and eight monthly events," says Jason Moss, CEO of GMA, "it seemed like good idea to align this month's plant tours with Manufacturing Day's October schedule."
"By adding our plant tours to Manufacturing Day's events, we're helping them reach into Georgia as they also promote manufacturing on a national level."
The additional plant tours will include Price industries in Suwanee, GA, Cleveland Tool in Cleveland, GA, RR Donnelley and Sons in Atlanta, GA, and JCB in Savannah, GA. Dates and registration details for these events can be found at MFGDay.com and GeorgiaManufacturingCalendar.com.
Manufacturing Day addresses common misconceptions 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 Manufacturing Day, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, and connect with future generations.
Supported by a group of industry sponsors and co-producers, Manufacturing Day is designed to amplify the voices of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges.
