Here is a recap of Manufacturing Day 2015 in LA County. Looking forward to planning a great 2016 Manufacturing Day!
The LAEDC & California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC) are working together to bring recognition to the importance of manufacturing throughout Los Angeles County. October 2nd is National Manufacturing Day, and we encourage your active participation in this effort!
Top 3 Reasons to Participate
- To Get Youth Excited About Manufacturing: Manufacturing has changed significantly over the years, and we need to reeducate students and their parents on the opportunities manufacturing can provide.
- To Create Awareness About the Importance of Manufacturing: We need more people to understand not only the significance of today’s manufacturing industry here and elsewhere but also how much it is changing and why continuing to have manufacturing here in Los Angeles County matters.
- To Showoff LA! LA County has more manufacturing employment than anywhere else in the nation. We have a diverse set of manufacturing industries here that don’t receive enough publicity and support.
