Manufacturing Day is every day at NJMEP. Our mission is to enhance the competitiveness and growth of small- and medium-sized manufacturers in New Jersey by helping clients improve productivity, efficiencies and technology performance.
Manufacturing Day is a day of recognition and is supported by manufacturers throughout the year as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers, legislators and the community at plant tours to in order to change people’s perceptions about today’s manufacturing environment and draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide. Governor Christie also declared October 6th as Manufacturing Day in New Jersey.
Many manufacturers have partnered with NJMEP, including ZaGo Manufacturing and eMachine Shop where the tours of their facilities allowed attendees to get a first-hand experience of the many processes, technology and innovation that goes into manufacturing.
