Manufacturing Day is an annual event that takes place on the first Friday in October. This year the celebration of modern manufacturing took place on October 4, 2019. Last year 3,000 events took place across the country to inspire and educate students, communities and policy makers on this integral component of the local, national and global economy.
On October 7, AIMS Metrology joined more than 1600 organizations to participate in Manufacturing Day 2016. Along with companies across the United States, AIMS opened its doors to expose and inspire young people to the career possibilities in the high tech world of modern day manufacturing. This tradition began in 2012 when New Jersey Governor Chris Christie proclaimed the first National Manufacturing Day, and continued when President Obama signed a presidential proclamation in 2014.
