Category Archive: Manufacturing Day
The upcoming Manufacturing Day celebration is the go-to event showcasing modern manufacturing and was created to inspire those who are either established or starting out in the dynamic and ever-evolving field of manufacturing. MFG Day celebrates the next generation of those who will be leading the way in manufacturing innovation and greatness. Normally this event begins on the first Friday in October, but this year is pushed to October 2, 2015. Mark your calendars!
MFG DAY has several purposes, but arguably the most important is to give those who are in the forefront an opportunity to collectively open wide their factory floors to not only illustrate what modern manufacturing is all about, but to also reveal what are common misperceptions and erroneous assumptions made by those who are not yet exposed to the reality of manufacturing today.
M & M Box & Partitions of Chicago is thrilled to be one of a group of industry sponsors and co-producers supporting MFG DAY. M & M Box understands how vital it is to get the proverbial word out about what individual manufacturers strive to achieve on a daily basis and to join in the collective chorus of manufacturers driven to trumpet the many opportunities for the future. MFG DAY, in a nutshell, is a vehicle for manufacturers to collectively address their common challenges and to help make communities and future generations all the more prosperous.
M & M Box Partitions Company has been manufacturing chip, corrugated and specialty board partitions since 1968. M & M Box has the machinery and capability to deliver on every design need, from cell sizes ranging from 1/4″ to 60″ in length and width to heights from 5/8″ to 24″. Give M & M Box a call today to find out more about its strict quality control program and its various premiere services and products.
On October 3rd the nation celebrated Manufacturing Day. And we at M&M Box were happy to take part. It is a day to get the word out about the importance of manufacturing. By bringing the importance of manufacturing to the forefront of people’s minds, we can encourage the next generation to follow in our footsteps. The importance of Manufacturing Day is shown by a growing skills gap and a lack in STEM education.
The skills gap is a growing concern for the manufacturing industry. With re-shoring in full effect, the country and industry needs more people to fill the shoes of those retiring and of the new jobs that are being created. The answer to the skills gap is STEM education. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Getting younger people interested in the field of STEM will surely help the manufacturing industry, as well as the country at large.
Manufacturing Day and the push for STEM education go hand in hand. On October 3rd, manufacturers across the country stood up together to educate the youth about the rewarding work of manufacturing. We are proud supporters of STEM education and hope you will reach out to us to learn more about it.
