Massachusetts Manufacturing Month 2016


Join us in Celebrating Manufacturing Month in Massachusetts
 

Calling all manufacturers, makers, inventors and everyone who knows how important manufacturing is to the Commonwealth – we need your help.

Many Massachusetts residents are unaware that manufacturing is alive and well across the Commonwealth.

► Massachusetts has more than 7,000 manufacturers with more than 250,000 jobs.

Innovative manufacturers are making groundbreaking products for global consumption.

Manufacturing jobs offer flexibility, excitement, and good pay, and companies are seeking smart, dedicated workers.

Help us show the world that cutting-edge Massachusetts manufacturers are ready to hire.
 

Help us celebrate Manufacturing Month by hosting an event in October.
 

Events should highlight manufacturing and can be a tour or open house of your facility, a panel discussion, a speaker, or a creative occasion to showcase manufacturing capabilities or products. Events may fall in one of these categories:

► Education: Showcasing the programs that prepare and motivate young people to pursue careers in manufacturing

Innovation: Showing how manufacturers are solving difficult problems and paving the way for the future

► Products: Highlighting the amazing products made in Massachusetts

► Sustainability: Promoting the incorporation of green and sustainable practices into the manufacturing process

► Workforce and Jobs: Making training and career pathways to well-paying jobs in manufacturing more visible
