2019 Manufacturing Day
October 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Manufacturing is one of Oregon’s top industries, providing jobs to thousands of people throughout the state. And we want to help recognize and celebrate this industry by holding events, signing proclamations, visiting with local manufacturers, and exposing the next generation of workers to this important business sector. Manufacturing Day is a nationwide tradition that is celebrated on or around October 4, where we get to do just that! We are once again excited to take part in this event with many local businesses and organizations around the state to help manufacturers open their doors to students and showcase this important industry.
