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.
Participating in Discover Manufacturing Week is a great opportunity for you to promote your business within the community. It allows you to
tell your company’s story and the great opportunities you offer;
connect directly with educators and students (your future employees!);
network with other local businesses; and
energize your team by showcasing their talent.
Don't miss this opportunity to expose your students to careers in manufacturing! Students will tour local manufacturing facilities, take part in hands-on demonstrations and hear from professionals currently working in manufacturing.
