Training must be a part of Manufacturing Day

Did you know that the first Friday of October is Manufacturing Day, an annual commemoration coordinated by the National Manufacturing Association? We were reminded of this when David Goldstein, a reporter for the Ventura County Star said he planned to write a story about why we should all appreciate manufacturing.

It's an interesting story and you should take a look. We suggested to David that he include mention of training in his story because training is such an essential element of a vibrant manufacturing sector. It turns out that the NMA and the Manufacturing Institute were one step ahead of us: they had set up a joint website, mfgday.com (aka CreatorsWanted.org) to call attention to the “need to fill 4.6 million modern manufacturing jobs in America by 2028.”

 

And of course, we were pleased to see Sam quoted in the story:

“Older workers are retiring, taking with them the skills and know-how they've accrued over the decades,” said Sam Zheng, CEO of DeepHow, a company focusing on knowledge transfer for manual trades. “An effective skills training strategy is crucial to attract younger workers into manufacturing careers.”

 

Many thanks to David at VCStar and to the kind folks at StartupNation!
