At Doherty, we work closely with the manufacturing industry, so we see the multi-faceted benefits that it brings to our economy. We see businesses creating the goods and services people need; countless men and women making manufacturing the career that supports their family; and the youths of today getting inspired to join the future manufacturing workforce.
Manufacturing is diverse. The wide range of companies and their products reflected on the interactive, infographic map shows a bit of the breadth the industry provides each of us.
Manufacturing supports 18.5 Million U.S. Jobs.
Manufacturing career opportunities include engineers, designers, machinists, computer programmers and so much more.
Manufacturing Day gives everyone a way to celebrate and learn more about the backbone of America.
Today’s Manufacturing Is Not Your Grandfather’s Manufacturing
Many people have an antiquated idea of manufacturing facilities as dirty and unpleasant places to work. That is not the case today! Manufacturing is making a comeback in the U.S. Company initiatives, as well as federal and state policies, support new technologies that make American manufacturing globally competitive, creating businesses and jobs across the country. Manufacturing Day celebrates this momentum driven by innovation.
Why celebrate Manufacturing Day?
Manufacturing Day is designed to give manufacturers an opportunity to share their craft and company culture with their communities. A straightforward story would be to profile a local business or business leader, discussing their concerns, plans, and reasons for participating in Manufacturing Day.
