PMA Sponsors MFG Day
PMA was in the news last week when it was announced that we joined the roster of Manufacturing Day 2014 as a Silver Sponsor.
As a reminder, Manufacturing Day is an annual event that takes place in communities across the nation with the goal of supporting local manufacturing.
This year, on October 3, manufacturing facilities will open their doors to students, parents, job seekers, and other community members to experience modern manufacturing technology and learn about careers.
Our sponsorship is important. We'll be helping to reach a maximum number of local manufacturers and assisting in coordinating a grassroots effort to improve the public perception of manufacturing in America.
PMA's sponsorship earned praise from FMA, one of Manufacturing Day's co-producers. “The co-producers could not be more pleased that these organizations, which are so dedicated to serving their respective sectors of the manufacturing industry, are putting their full support behind Manufacturing Day for the second straight year,” said Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association. “Their reputation and their reach to professionals in the industry as well as educators and students will help to generate participation in Manufacturing Day events across the nation.”
