SME Celebrates Manufacturing Day 2014!

Manufacturing Day, now in its third year, was created to address common misperceptions by giving manufacturers the opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing truly is.

Throughout the month of October, SME will be supporting Manufacturing Day through SME chapter activities and events, the SME Education Foundation’s PRIME school network, Tooling U-SME and a new manufacturing awareness campaign, #MFGis.

SME, the SME Education Foundation and Tooling U-SME are proud to sponsor Manufacturing Day 2014 and take an active supporting role. Take a look at SME’s related activities and events below.
