MFG Day is a great way for students to gain insight into an industry that is vital to the American economy and to connect school with the workplace.
ROSTA US took part in the annual event by hosting a booth and sharing knowledge about vibration isolation technologies with the future generation of innovators.
US President Jeremy Thiele stated, "MFG Day not only offers students the opportunity to learn about our industry but also the variety of career opportunities manufacturing can provide. More importantly, students are able to see how lessons learned in school apply to the real working world,"
Why is MFG Day important to celebrate?
The manufacturing industry is vital to a healthy economy. “The U.S. manufacturing’s value chain accounts for about 1/3 of GDP and employment in the U.S. For each full-time manufacturing job created, 3/4 full-time jobs are created in nonmanufacturing industries. For every $1 of domestic manufacturing value-added, another $3.60 of value-added is generated elsewhere,” says Douglas Woods, president of AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology.
