    As the first Friday in October, National Manufacturing Day 2017 will happen on October 6th. As a prominent electronics component manufacturer, MPS Industries is happy to spread the word about NMD. This year the event promises to be a day full of education and encouragement for all attendees.

    What MFG DAY Means for the Industry

    Produced by the National Association of Manufacturers, National Manufacturing Day is a way to halt common misconceptions about the industry. Facilities across the nation will open up their doors to connect with the next generation and present the truth of the industry as it is today. Along with providing this educational opportunity, the annual event also provides manufacturers with a platform to speak about positive industry attributes, as well as shared challenges, and to connect with the community.

    These efforts help ensure a strong future for the United States manufacturing industry that is enjoying a comeback following the Great Recession of 2010. Inviting students, businesspeople, journalists, teachers, and politicians onto industry shop floors across the US can help influence public views about manufacturing.

    Bridging the Skills Gap and More

    National Manufacturing Day is important as it provides firsthand the opportunity to see the tech-savvy present-day manufacturing force. MFG DAY is a vehicle to combat current issues facing the manufacturing industry, such as the skills gap and the shortage of girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) subjects in comparison to boys.

    MFG DAY also is in favor of reshoring or bringing manufacturing jobs back to the organization’s headquarters rather than outsourcing overseas. Our MPS team supports reshoring, STEM education, and efforts to bridge the skills gap.

  2. MPS Industries Celebrates National Manufacturing Day October 7th

    National Manufacturing Day is held each October on the first Friday of the month. This year, the event will be October 7th, with over 2,341 events scheduled to date. Events are held at manufacturing facilities across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.

    National Manufacturing Day was created to celebrate manufacturing and how it positively impacts our nation’s communities and economy. It’s also a day for companies to open their doors to STEM students and the general public to give them a better understanding of just what manufacturing is and to connect to and inspire future generations to become more involved. This is important because of the skilled labor shortage that companies are facing now and in the near future.

    National Manufacturing Day has four co-sponsors: Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International®, National Association of Manufacturers, Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and the Manufacturing Institute. The goal of these four organizations in establishing National Manufacturing Day was to change misperceptions surrounding the manufacturing industry, address the skilled labor shortage, and establish a secure path for manufacturing’s future.

We produce a wide variety of transformers, inductors, common mode chokes, current sense transformers, RF transformers, broadband, LAN, and telecom magnetics, video isolation transformers and audio transformers.
