National Manufacturing Day has always been an important way for NJMEP to spread the word about the benefits that manufacturing provides to our Garden State. As a proud supporter of Manufacturing Day, NJMEP is excited to drive awareness of manufacturing, the career opportunities that are available, and the advanced technologies that are driving the industry. For us, every day is Manufacturing Day. NJMEP regularly celebrates manufacturing and inspires the next generation of manufacturers.
NJMEP celebrates New Jersey manufacturers who develop and manufacture products and unlock new technologies that grow our economy. They create jobs through entrepreneurship, and their competitiveness revitalizes American manufacturing. National Manufacturing Day aims to empower manufacturers, change public perception about the industry, highlight its economic impacts, and introduce more people to available career opportunities.
We are excited to have a hybrid event this year, with limited capacity at the facility, we are putting together a meaningful program for both those who attend in person as well as online.
