Inspire the next generation of manufacturers.

In the News

Discover Manufacturing Week is a hands-on region-specific collaborative in West Michigan tasked with addressing the talent needs of manufacturing in the region. Manufacturing Week is part of the national MFG DAY initiative to address common misconceptions about manufacturing. Manufacturers across West Michigan introduce their communities to modern manufacturing with facility tours, open houses, block parties and more. Discover Manufacturing has branded Manufacturing Week as the most successful Manufacturing Day/Week/Month throughout the nation.

Discover Manufacturing Week 2020 is November 9-13!


Discover Manufacturing Week 2020 is set for November 9-13, 2020 and will continue its mission to support and promote career interest in manufacturing as well as change the perception of this industry. 


This year we will provide live, virtual events using the Zoom webinar platform. All webinars will be recorded and uploaded a newly created Discover Manufacturing YouTube Channel and be easily available for future use by students, parents, and educators.  


Due to the limitations of hosting Discover Manufacturing Week as a virtual event, we are creating 10 webinars: two webinars per day, 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Each webinar will be one-hour and will feature four manufacturing companies. In each webinar, manufacturers will be grouped by geographic location.
