ROCKFORD, Ill., Sept. 15, 2015 – The co-producers of Manufacturing DaySM are pleased to welcome Faurecia to the roster of 2015 supporters as a Silver sponsor. 

Manufacturing Day sponsors provide the resources to support manufacturers participating in the program, a grassroots effort by U.S. manufacturers to improve public perception of manufacturing in America by coordinating awareness-raising activities at a variety of locations across the country on October 2, 2015.

Manufacturing Day is an annual national event, executed at the local level, that supports hundreds of manufacturers across the nation as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers. A panel of co-producers comprised of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM) provide the centralized support necessary to coordinate this nationwide array of simultaneous events. The national media partners for the event are Edge Factor and the Science Channel and the national movie partner is American Made Movie.

“The co-producing organizations appreciate the support of Faurecia which is our first transportation industry sponsor,” said Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association.
