It’s Manufacturing Day (and Month) in Ohio

It’s here — Manufacturing Day 2019. Throughout Ohio, manufacturers, community colleges, and others are opening their doors to give students a firsthand look at the many rewarding, well-paying career options in the manufacturing sector.

Not all of Ohio’s MFG Day events will take place today. Several will be held later this month. So if your company wants to host an event to inspire the next generation of manufacturers, there’s still time. (By the way, be sure to send us images from your MFG Day event to share on OMA’s social media.)

Meanwhile, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Jon Husted have recognized October as Manufacturing Month. In a proclamation presented to the OMA, the state’s top two leaders point out that Ohio is the third largest manufacturing state — and that manufacturing provides more than 700,000 Ohio jobs, while employing more than 20% of rural Ohioans. 10/4/2019
