A New Holiday to Celebrate

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

I read about a holiday named National MFG Day and I had to find out more about it. A Google search produced this website: https://www.mfgday.com/.

The holiday started in 2014 was created to inspire young people to go into manufacturing or engineering as a career. Manufactures encourage students, parents and educators to take a tour of participating facilities. Over 1600 manufacturers participate each year. It is celebrated on the first Friday in October (in 2019, it’s October 4).

C-Line is a manufacturer of plastic storage, identification and organization items that include shop ticket holders, poly sheet protectors, and name badges (including the iconic, “Hello My Name Is” pressure-sensitive badge). We just celebrated our 70th anniversary at our corporate headquarters and distribution facility in Mount Prospect, IL. We wish to recognize our fellow manufacturers and applaud their diligence and entrepreneurial spirit. We encourage all manufacturers to participate as they can on National MFG Day. Please use the hashtag #MFG19 on social media to get the word out about this day.
